What is my background?
I have a background in art and design and I feel my journey has involved aspects of UX/UI design throughout my career without me knowing it in the beginning.
I began in art and design (drawing and painting) achieving an A distinction during my school days. Through collage I covered print, branding, typography, 3D animation and digital modelling. Taking these skill into university I covered the overall aspects of design, 3D modelling and animation as I aspirated to be a computer games artist.
After exiting university I found getting into the games industry extremely competitive. So I decided to build my graphic/web design skills doing part time freelance work for local start-ups. This gave me the platform to be build my experience while working for Yell.com, e-Comet and currently Accident Advice Helpline.
During my present employment I had the chance to do UX/UI redesigns for websites owned by the business. This gave me the taste for it and through training and freelance work my enjoyment and passion for this skill has grown.
What do I want in my next role:
It's important to me to be ambitious and not hold back my potential. In my next role I would love to be more involved throughout the UX/UI design process. I would like to see the websites and apps improve because of the team work done prior. Also I would like my voice to be heard and to make a difference.
A little more about my life:
I’m a family man with one beautiful daughter called Erykah. I enjoy the littles in life and I love taking on a challenge, such as learning now to be Erykah hair stylist. I come from a big family with 4 sisters and 1 brother. My parents were originally from the Jamaica and St Vincent which meant I spent most of my childhood holidays in the Caribbean.
