A bit about me
I'm currently the Senior Interactive Designer at Helios Interactive. I have four years of experience creating impactful digital experiences with VR, AR, green screen and mobile technology. I design with accessibility and inclusivity at the forefront, and love experimenting with emerging technologies like virtual and augmented reality.
Outside of work, I'm extremely passionate about mentoring other designers, and exploring design's place in politics and social advocacy.
