Prior to working in the field of UX, I was a creative in the food industry dishing out new cake flavors and designs. It was my job to be updated on the latest food trends and bring customers flavor combinations that they didn’t know they wanted to boost sales while managing and delegating work to a large team. I spent a lot of my spare time developing ideas to improve workflow and solving ever arising problems when dealing with temperamental baked goods. Did you know that the weather can affect how your cakes rise? What about the temperature of your ingredients and how long you mix them? It’s true that these small details made a huge difference and it was something I always had to be on top of. However, over the years, the attention to these details became second nature and the problems were repetitive. I wanted to use my skills for something bigger and more meaningful. Enter UX/UI design. UX/UI allows me to use my creativity and problem solving skills to pursue a satisfying career that makes my ideas feel more alive. I am able to solve all different types of problems in a variety of industries and give my creative solutions a higher purpose.
There is nothing I like more than challenging myself and pushing to be the best version of me that I can be. As humans we are always learning, always growing, and always moving forward. Through experience, practice, and knowledge, I hope to strengthen my skills not only as a product designer, but as a person, a friend, and a colleague.
When I’m not designing you can find me:
- Playing video games
- Spending time with my fur babies
- Wishing to travel and explore different cultures
- Looking for the newest restaurants to help me gain another 5lbs.
- Doing all of the above to avoid getting on my exercise bike
