About me
Passionate about creating remarkable user experiences that evoke emotion and enjoyable to use I have recently completed a UX training program called Flipside which aims to train young Londoners as digital product designers. During the program I worked at design agencies Ustwo, Sennep, Beyond and Made by Many, with company visits to Facebook and Google. This exposure has inspired me to pursue a career in UX and have started to create a portfolio to get my first role.
