COMING FROM A FAMILY OF CREATORS, I GREW UP IN A VERY ART FORWARD ENVIRONMENT SO IT FELT VERY NATURAL LEAVING THE NEST TO PURSUE ANIMATION AT THE SCHOOL OF VISUAL ARTS IN NEW YORK CITY.
UPON GRADUATING, I WASN'T SUPER KEEN ON CONTINUING THE PATH OF AN ANIMATOR SO IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE I FLEW INTO THE WORLD OF Video EditING at a TV/Advertising company. One day I was let go with a few other people due to a merger WITH COMCAST. BUT THANKFULLY A friend had INTRODUCED me TO A TEMPORARY NEST VERY DIFFERENT FROM THE DIGITAL ART WORLD.
I have since then been a Brand AmbassadoR PROMOTING, MARKETING AND DISCOVERING CLIENT NEEDS for various CONSUMER DRIVEN businesses SUCH AS A LUXURY FRENCH MUSTARD BRAND THAT SPECIALIZED IN MUSTARD ON TAP! As my confidence grew, so did my INTEREST WITH PEOPLE and sought to do more involving PEOPLE INTERACTION. I DID SOME RESEARCH AND found out about UX Design THROUGH GENERAL ASSEMBLY.
aFTER TAKING theIR 10 week UX Design Immersive course, I realized that rather than being the voice for a product/BUSINESS, I was more passionate/motivated to be the voice of the user for a product.
