What areas do you specialize in? (ex: Creative writing, web development, finance, activism, etc.)

Interaction Design
UX Research
Visual Design

Talk about a time where you organized/built/created something.

I designed a hybrid car dashboard which has 3 touch points

1. Touch Screen interface
2. Tactile Knob
3. Voice control

The process began by sitting with users in their cars to understand how they interact within their car environment. Once I understood their interactions, I decided to implement a 3 point system to provide a fail safe system for interaction. For example, if the touch screen system fails, users can still access the system using the tactile system

What is something you've learned related to your specializations, and what are your thoughts on it?

I have developed the ability to curate immersive interaction designs and motion designs. Interaction design provides the factor of ensuring the user experience of a product remains intuitive and user friendly. It has also enabled me to build up on my UX writing skills, having more impactful content with great user interfaces

What are your passions, and how do you engage with them?

My passion to create meaningful products relevant to current issues. I do that by trying to design solutions which mitigate this problem and then test it with users to see whether my solutions can be feasible
