About

My name is AJ and I'm currently finishing my final semester at The School of Interactive Arts + Technology @ SFU with a minor in Print and Digital Publishing. I'm expected to graduate at the end of 2018. I have collaborated with teams across multiple dimensions of a product lifecycle starting from inception to launch. 

I enjoy engaging with the design community and gave a talk on communicating user research insights at UX Research TO. I also interviewed with SFU on my past experiences as a budding designer.

I’m currently seeking new opportunities.

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

About

Hi! My name is AJ and I'm currently finishing my final semester at The School of Interactive Arts + Technology @ SFU with a minor in Print and Digital Publishing. I'm expected 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. I have experience solving problems across many areas include monetization, growth, SEO, conversion, social sharing, community and public safety. 

I enjoy engaging with the design community and 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.

I'm also a plant fanatic. People have called my living space a tropical jungle and I don't seem to mind at all
