About Me

Hey, I’m Sam. I’m an Australian currently living in the Pacific Northwest.  I’ve been lucky to have a multidisciplinary education and explored many fields of study; having these experiences has enriched my practice as a UX designer. UX Design work is always exciting to me because I’m constantly learning new things and challenging my own perspectives. I am dedicated to problem solving through the use of creative design solutions. As UX designers we must remember our purpose, design for the user, not the designer. Each user is unique, and we must account for that.I fill up my spare time working on projects that I hope will bring joy to people.
