What made you decide to pursue your degree in WDOC?

I wanted to be able to pursue a career as a Product Designer for a tech company. I had already worked as a social media marketer for a tech startup, but I wanted to be one of the guys known for bringing an app or web platform to life.

What has been the biggest thing you have learned in your classes?

I’ve learned so much about the importance of communication and collaboration between designers and developers. They have to be on the same page and willing to give and take from one another. I also learned the basics of coding and being able to bring different visuals to life.

What have you learned in your classes that you have already applied to your job?

I’ve learned how to use different design tools to create high fidelity mockups to show to stakeholders.

What are your career aspirations?

To become a product designer for a big tech company.

What accomplishment are you the proudest of achieving?

Being able to build upon my current portfolio and having the opportunity to work with various clients as a freelance UI/UX designer
