When I launched my first website, I wanted to know the needs of my audience, and conducted stakeholder interviews and usability testing, before I knew those were integral tools used in the human-centered design process.
I'm an enthusiastic, and patient advocate for people, and fascinated by how people learn and communicate.
I'm a lover of culture and language. I speak Spanish, and a bit of a few others, namely Tagalog.
Connecting with people of diverse backgrounds and with different communication styles has shown me that empathy and listening are crucial for relationships to form and grow. This philosophy is a cornerstone of my value set as a designer.
