Let's go back to 2013, where I found a passion for using design to help people thrive.
Fresh out of school, I started my career immersing myself in community-focused design with a boutique agency. I had the opportunity to facilitate youth-engagement workshops with the East Scarborough Storefront—an adaptive re-use community hub designed in part by the neighbourhood residents and kids.
Seeing the impact of participatory design cemented my foundational beliefs in human-centered design.
I found a joy for instiling elements of discovery in my work, and rewarding curiosity through design.
I love that digital has a unique ability to prompt diverse and dynamic experiences in our day-to-day lives, especially when integrated into the built world. I pursued a Masters in Digital Media, focusing my work on human-computer interaction, kid-centered design, and multisensory experiences. I started to use a lens of storytelling—studying how narratives can impact the process and products of design as a universal language. Naturally, this landed me into the world of theme parks.
