About Me

#ActuallyAutistic#UIDesign

I am a high-functioning individual with Aspergers which gives me extreme attention to detail, especially during the creative process. I am very passionate about visual design, as well as music and film.

Ideal Workplace Values

A place that is LGBT friendly is important for me.


Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I have a natural knack to identify flaws and inconsistencies in products' visual designs, as well as spelling/grammar mistakes. From a UI/UX design point-of-view, identifying these flaws and brainstorming ways to resolve them is key not only to creating a user-friendly experience for any product from the start, but also to continuously improving upon existing designs.
