As a Universal and User Experience designer, I consult with your consumers, design team, your stakeholders, and your engineers with a users’ perspective toward delivering the responsive, mobile-first communication and content your customer needs, and your business wants.

Quality platform and website design, low to hi-fidelity prototyping, best practice techniques, and research build on the success of your company and its services and products.

I am a qualified designer, teacher, and manager specialising in learning and customer transactions in the digital paradigm. Go to the About Me page for more.

My hobbies include digital painting. I held my first art exhibition in July 2017, which was extended for 4 weeks. I am also being coached in how to paint with acrylics and will in turn hold workshops using Microsoft PowerPoint to produce vector graphics. Find me on Behance.
