For the past 24 years, I’ve been honing my skills in design, production and management roles building web and mobile products, as well as advertising and digital marketing. In each role, I’ve worked to learn as much as possible about my clients and their customers, to understand the big picture and design solutions that both serve business and customer needs.
Since discovering UX, I’ve studied Human-Computer Interaction and Product Management, learning the principles and methodologies of UX/UI and Product Design and applying them to projects.
I now seek a role where I can apply my years of experience, creativity and knowledge of user-centered design to help build products that are easier and more enjoyable to use.
Here are the values I bring to my professional and personal relationships:
Treat others with kindness and respect. It will come back to you.
When you say you’re going to do something, do it. It’s that simple.
Life gets tough sometimes. When you face a challenge, see it through to the end.
Words spoken or actions taken in anger are hard to take back. Controlling your emotions will allow you to think rationally.
There’s no such thing as a failure who keeps trying. Never give up.
It’s no coincidence that these are also the tenets of Taekwon-Do. I have used these tenets to help guide my professional and personal conduct over the past 20 years. I am, and will continue to be a work in progress.
