Design

As lead user experience designer on a number of web application products, I have learned and continue to hone a human-centric approach to the design process. I am able to formulate and conduct user interviews, distil that information to create key user-personas and user journey maps as a starting point for design. I am able to utilize that information along with business needs to synthesize app maps, wireframes and prototypes for proof of concept, usability testing and interaction optimization early on in the product development cycle.

My toolset includes Adobe creative suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign) as well as Sketch and InVision for rapid prototyping.

Events

Working in both corporate and private event management teams, I posses skills to coordinate smooth setup for events ranging from 10-15000 people with budgets from $1000 up to $100,000. As the point of contact both in the field and the office, I have organized logistical setup details with ease and have come up with creative solutions for unexpected situations. Over 400 events including:

  • Virgin Airlines Drake party
  • Emirates A380 Canadian inauguration
  • Skills Canada Competition
  • The Nighttime Parade EP release
