As a designer, I make sure that my work is a reflection of what I believe to be true. If done effectively, design has the capacity to change human behavior and shape industries. I understand the importance of validating my assumptions, and so I approach my work with humility and willingness to learn, whether that be domain knowledge or technical knowledge.
As a self-taught designer, I understand a lot of the barriers that comes with learning about design. Therefore, I currently teach UX research and UI design on behalf of the UBC UX Hub to support students who are doing the same.
I write weekly articles on my design experiences but also on interesting topics that inspire deep conversations within the space of design. You can find them here, and if you have any thoughts on what I should write next, send me a message!
The answer to this question used to be designing things, but I guess that doesn't really work for this situation. When I have time, I like making music in my bedroom studio, DJing at campus parties and cooking for friends.
You can tell a lot about a person from the books they read. As someone who used to absolutely hate reading, I've recently found a liking in books for self-teaching myself different topics from user experience and marketing. These are books from my modest collection that I've thoroughly enjoyed reading. If you have a recommendation, feel free to send me a message.
