Nice to meet you

Nice to meet you

I'm an versatile visual designer currently working as UX/UI at a boutique digital agency in Toronto. Prior to UX/UI, I spent 10 years designing and managing fashion collections for retailers in Toronto, Montreal, and London.  I have 10+ years experience creating vector graphics, colour palettes, brand identity, and solving user centred design problems.

I'm passionate about digital product design and I love the creative problem solving that UX entails. Get in touch if you want to chat about interesting projects, or just tell me what your favourite font is.

I'm a visual design veteran who recently made the switch to UX/UI  after spending the last 10 years designing and managing fashion collections for retailers in Toronto, Montreal, and London.

After a decade in fashion, I was looking for new challenges in a more progressive field and felt the itch to join the tech industry. Now I'm loving the world of digital product design and all of the creative problem solving that UX entails.
