You can call me an urban-enthusiast. I bike. I dance. I wander. I imagine. I not only want to understand why the world goes ‘round, I want to be a part of it.
I believe the pursuit of innovation doesn’t happen behind a computer screen. It is shaped by the interactions and relationships we form with others and the surrounding environment. For me, field work isn’t a task, its a lifestyle.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve always enjoyed problem-solving. When I began my undergraduate education, I was excited to apply creative problem-solving to landscape architecture. What I valued about the industry, was the holistic approach to creating a design solution. The design solution was often a cross-pollination of design, ecology, sociology, economics, and art.
I practiced landscape architecture for 2 plus years in San Francisco, and was fortunate to have been able to collaborate on numerous international projects. However, as I developed as a designer, I discovered my passion; people.
I strive for human-centric design solutions. I am excited to dive into UX because of the emphasis on the user. I value the research that identifies design objectives and the solutions that place the user first.
Another component of UX that excites me is the potential for creative exploration. As an evolving field, UX provides solutions that are amended and enhanced as frequently as needed. I believe this concept really opens the door for thinking outside the box and taking a design risk. Cause lets be honest, the biggest risk in life is not taking one at all.
