Artist, Product Designer, Metaverse Maker ✰ 

I'm an Interaction Design graduate from Emily Carr University of Art and Design, currently a Product Designer in the Web 3.0 space for Shape.

My work focuses on designing digital experiences that allow people to express themselves creatively and connect through their individuality. By combining interactive art / design and UX research, I value pushing the boundaries of modern forms of self-expression.

In my free time, you can find me painting portraits, drawing Astrogirls, and experimenting in 3D! 🍧
