I’m a passionate designer with over 8 years of studio experience at HeartThis Inc (A Google Ventures Company), Amazon, Disney, Corus Entertainment and Nelvana. Within a team I designed and created the user experience for the Sundance Channel, Movie Central and YTV from wireframing to design and received positive feedback from the stakeholders and art directors. I’m also the founder of Koalaface Designs where we craft beautiful online experiences.

In 2012, I’m the lead UX and visual designer for a major redesign project at Disney. I provided, planned and proposed a clear vision on a successful user flow, visual design for a cross-platform accessible experience. More recently in 2013, I'm the visual designer for an on-going project at Amazon, I made an important contribution by developing a unique set of cohesive visual design patterns for a complex cross-device product design. I have worked on many major content heavy redesigns in the past and that is my strength.

I’m comfortable in an agile product development, an advocate for the end-user, and truly believe in delivering a beautiful product. If you're interested in collaborating, connect with me.
