For the first 10+ years of my career, I had been a teacher of English and an interpreter. Changed my career path in 2005 to become a designer. By combining my presentation methods and visualization skills which I acquired through my teaching career and design sense, I can always create user-centered designs that captivate and magnetize users’ attention. I believe that design is communication.
Out-of-the-box way of thinking is one of my attributes. I am also a positive problem solver and brainstormer. My current title is designer, but I’m an all-round player.
