Q & A
I believe in creating your own opportunities. Which is why I started Loo, a venture that aims to help you find accessible public toilets in your city.
As a designer, I prioritize the user experience of my design systems. As an individual, I believe in ethical responsibilities, and creating an accessible future for all.
I like to invent new things. I love working in creative environments and being a designer allows me to express myself creatively to solve problems. I also like technology - thinking, writing, and talking about how it can transform our lives.
I am an ex-refugee, orphan, assault survivor, grew up in Jane and Weston, LGBT+ member. I'm also incredibly resourceful, thoughtful and creative. I love to swim, write, code. I help out with the non-profit BridgeTO.
