About me

After completing degrees in Graphic Design and Marketing, I spent several years in Montreal working as a Web Designer. More recently, I complete my studies with a MSc in User Experience Design at Kingston University in London. Now UX Designer for the digital agency West in Paris, I work on both interface design and on-field user research. Part of my role is to prepare and facilitate workshops or usability testing sessions to validate hypotheses with stakeholders and end users. I also work with sketches, wireframes and prototypes to communicate concepts with development, design and web marketing teams members. I am particularly interested in service design methodology and in designing B2B app that answers to unique user needs. To keep myself informed and communicate trends to others about the tech and design industry, I write articles about UX or other related subjects on Medium.
