More about me.
“All men have stars, but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travelers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems... But all these stars are silent. You-You alone will have stars as no one else has them... In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars will be laughing when you look at the sky at night..You, only you, will have stars that can laugh! And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me... You will always be my friend. You will want to laugh with me. And you will sometimes open your window, so, for that pleasure... It will be as if, in place of the stars, I had given you a great number of little bells that knew how to laugh”.

“What wouldn't I give now for a never-changing map of the ever-constant ineffable?
To possess, as it were, an atlas of clouds.”

My primary focus is interaction design and the principle of linguistic relativity: the structure of a language affects the ways in which its speakers are able to conceptualize their world, i.e. their world view, in addition to the syntax of artificial languages.
I attended Langara College with a focus on art history and literature, before continuing my studies at Simon Fraser University in Interaction Design, Linguistics and Literature.
I was first introduced to design principles and practices in 2007 and 2008, where I was a runner-up winner for a snowboard design contest for the Web Directions North Conference.
This conference is now an bi-annual event that covers the full range of interests for web professionals: web design standards, front-end and back-end development, information architecture, interaction design, accessibility and data visualization.
