I have always found that leading great teams requires the ability to solve problems creatively. I believe what makes an authentic web product is a profound faith that together with hard work, compassion and cooperation, we can build a better journey for our software users.
My web designs are about the great teams that stand behind a great product. Our ideas, our efforts, our communities – our future. This site is about people, each and every one of us, and the role we can play in our teams to enrich the lives of the people who use our designs.

I'm a hard working designer who is fueled by my ambition to allow my software users to have the very best journeys they can; not just for their sakes, but for all generations to come. We are all doing our best to live in the present, our goals are to think about how our users’ needs intersect with our product while providing them with every opportunity to access our product online; paying for those pain points or product requirements as best we can, whenever we can. I am living my life as a designer in Georgetown Ontario, and I am committed to leading our future with better and more inclusive designs.
I am committed to generating designs where they are going to be, not how we remember they were. Small and medium sized businesses are our future. We need to get smart with design and move towards basing reputation on forward based design thinking!
Assess the strengths and weaknesses of your competitors’ products against your users' needs. I begin my design journey by conducting a Competitive Analysis on what the market is offering to users of similar products.
Capture user behaviors, pain points, motivations, and needs from contextual inquiries about the product. I conduct interviews to capture data by breaking down participant feedback into predominate themes that motivate participants to use a product.
Identify users' thought processes and desired reactions toward each product requirement. Identify target user groups preferred application requirements by using a statistical analysis to generalize preferred software mechanics.
Communicate abstract concepts with users and get users involved early in the design process with quick and inexpensive prototypes and generate feedback. Uncover usability issues and validate design decisions based on actual user reactions.
Apply product branding, grid structure, typography, color scheme, and icons. In this step of the UXD process I developed a mockup of the User Interface to ensure the usability of the software/web site, ensuring the usability of the product.
In the final stage of the design process we used the software/website and begin the iterative process of fixing bugs and adding in new features to keep the software fresh as it is being used.
