This is my story — alongside some flicks from my recent trip to Japan.
My background in Architecture.
In June of 2022, I graduated from architecture school at the University of Toronto. There, I became obsessed with architectural visualization.
I was deeply fascinated in the concepts of modularity and adaptability — how our built environment could organically evolve in conjuction with our lifestyles and larger societal forces.
But, I wanted more.
Though I loved the freedom of the academic design environment, I was dissatisfied with how slow the industry actually moved.
I wanted to push my design craft at a faster pace and have a positive impact on vastly more people.
This thing called UX?
When the pandemic struck, I took it as an opportunity to explore new things. I came across UX design competitions, and thought it might be fun to just give it a go (several times).
Long story short, my failures eventually turned into successes, and the rest was history.
Making it all happen.
To my advantage, I was able leverage a lot of the skills and design principles I had picked up during architecture school to greatly expedite my journey of self-learning UX Design.
I loved solving problems by making stuff, and really valued visual storytelling and paying meticulous attention to precision and craftsmanship.
In my spare time,
I'm probably making tweaks to my portfolio or hanging out on the Design Buddies Discord server.
Other than that, you'll find me playing basketball and volleyball, hitting the gym, gaming, and trying to get my hands on the latest tech.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
