Human-centered design and innovation: my two passions.

NYC-Based, Toronto-Born

I believe that empathy and communication are the most valuable skills that I possess.  Most every other skill can be learned easily, but those two are an important determinant for how well one can work, with whom one can work, and how well the product will work.

I have been dabbling in website design for a very long time, and have always had a strong understanding of people and what they want and need, or ways of finding that out.  Being able to use my knowledge and skills in new and helpful ways is my passion, and working on internal systems has been as much challenging as it has been rewarding.

Whether on desktop, mobile, a product, application, facilitation, or game, I am passionate about people-centered design and about creating new and innovative products to surprise and delight.
