Let's go back to 2014, 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 let curiosity lead my growth, and found a love for instiling elements of discovery into my design work.
Digital has the ability to create so many diverse, dynamic, and personal experiences, when integrated into the built world. I pursued a Masters in Digital Media, focusing my work on human-computer interaction, Gen Z innovation, and multisensory experiences. In that year, I looked at how archetypal narrative structure can be applied to the interactions we have with the world. I found a passion for storytelling, as a common human thread in both digital and physical design, before landing in the world of theme parks.
