I am always improving my systems thinking and love to find root causes and problems within complex socio-technical systems. This took me on a journey from an initial career in software development into designing for problems ranging from sustainability issues to everyday interactions with systems, apps and platforms for major corporations.
My focus is moving towards social issues in our current food security system with projects like food-is-free and various permaculture, entrepreneurship and social design groups making this part of my personal vision for my life.
My mission would translate to growing competency in design in both me and my design teams. In order to build better human experiences. Translating that in my day to day hobbies with community vegetable gardens running on permaculture practices and various startups initiatives bringing design to sectors that need is.
My technical and theoretical background allows me to identify patterns in systems and then use tried and tested design thinking methods to identify pain points with metrics and remedy these issues through prototyping and testing to have measurable outcomes.
Design for Human-Computer Interaction, Accessibility for disability, Research & analyses, Ethnographic research and heuristic evaluation, Collaboration (Brain Storming, Ideation & general white-boarding), Visual Design, Building and User-Testing on prototypes, Persona Creation, User story creation and prioritization, UX management & strategy I also started stepping into general product ownership, and project management completing various modules and certificates through Agile Alliance and Linkedin learning.
