About

Hi! My name is AJ and I'm currently finishing my final year as a senior design student at The School of Interactive Arts + Technology @ SFU with a minor in Print and Digital publishing expecting to graduate at the end of 2018. I'm passionate about the intersection of research and design and have collaborated with teams across multiple dimensions of a product lifecycle from inception to launch and focused efforts on initiatives that include monetization, growth, SEO, conversion, social sharing and much more.

I enjoy engaging with the design community and recently gave a talk on communicating user research insights at UX Research TO. I also interviewed with SFU on my past experiences as a previous intern to full-timer.

I'm on Twitter, Instagram and Linkedin. Let's connect.
