Design

Diving forward into user experience design, I have learned and continue to hone a user-centered approach to the design process. I am able to formulate and conduct user interviews, distil that information to create user-flows and key user personas as a starting point for design. I am able to utilize that information to create wireframes and prototypes for proof of concept, usability testing and interaction optimization.

I can create and edit with the Adobe creative suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign) and feel confident operating similar design suites for marketing and commercial purposes.

Events management

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 can organize logistical details with ease and 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
  • Masterchef Canada
  • Francophone Olympics
