I am a freelance user experience designer and information architect based in Vancouver. I believe in user-centered design, seek simplicity, and care about accessible, inclusive and humane design.
I utilize a design thinking approach to ideate, collaborate and facilitate design. I follow both agile and lean development principles, iterating and testing to increase efficiency, quality and user experience. I manage a broad toolkit of methods and techniques to support the entire design process (research, planning, design, and testing) and know when and how to utilize each.
