In the past, when I worked as a sound designer, I had to understand the meaning behind each scene and craft an appropriate sound. When I worked as an instructor, I catered each lesson to as many students as possible so no one falls behind.
These jobs influenced my abilities as a UX Designer by helping me to come up with the meaning behind each design decision. In teaching, the challenge of balancing learning with fun is just like how a software has to balance being intuitive, visually appealing, and feasible to develop.
I love creating new things and helping others to realize ideas. I'm a huge nerd so when I'm not working, you'll probably find me painting miniatures or playing board games with friends.
