User Experience Designer
"The design should always overshadow the ego of the designer"
23 year old designer, originally from Trinidad. Worked as a professional graphic designer in 2006 - 2007. With an urge to challenge myself I graduated to broadcast and post-production. in 2008 I left to pursue my degree in Industrial Design. My senior year of college I focused on Interaction Design. I dealt with several aspects such as Information Architecture, User Experience Design and Interface Design. I worked alongside a talented team sketching wire-frames and flow models as well as conceptualizing scenarios. for the SCAD Material Library. I spend a great amount of time sketching and building skills in rapid ideation. I am a driven designer who accepts challenges with open arms. I enjoy collaborating and bouncing ideas off of other designers. Design research and user testing are essential tools in the design process and are highly significant in order to execute a solid design. I believe that a good design is not only innovative but also emergent. The designs cycle must be thoroughly planned out, the carbon footprint must be considered and sustainability must be applied. I believe that designers of this era should be responsible, as we are in the apex of humanity due to the fact that we have witnessed both analog and digital worlds. I am very passionate about technology as well as the semantics behind it. I moved to the Bay Area recently to network and start my career as a designer ready to learn and share ideas.
