Many people often find it interesting that I was in fact born in Saskatchewan. When I was five, my parents decided to move to Ontario to pursue more exciting opportunities. Growing up, I was exposed to different cultures and people, and I think that it was because of this that I developed my own unique way of understanding the world around me. I feel a need to help people, regardless of who they are, and this is what inspires my creativity. I love video games, mainly because of how interactive they are as a form of media. I started my journey as an illustrator, hoping to work in the video game industry as a concept artist. I was determined, and I put all of my efforts into collaborative projects so that I could understand the development process. While on my journey, I stumbled across UX during one of my projects. I became instantly immersed in the process and the interactions that I got to experience with not only other designers but also the end users. I realized that there was an opportunity for me to grow into a better designer by using UX as a way to channel my creative drive, so that I can help others.
