I often have geek-out conversations in my head about technology, design, psychology and how they all relate. I try and have conversations with real people as often as I can, but sometimes I just want to write them down, so the stuff here are things that I like and care about a lot; the stuff that just happens to be in my head. I hope you like it.
I have always wanted to write but being dyslexic made it rather hard. So if you find spelling mistakes I apologise profusely, please just let me know and I will fix them. I have always thought that the spelling of the word dyslexic was one of English’s many little jokes it could play on me. I just hope that I can put my thoughts across in an understandable and still interesting way.
Because I have never really been able to decide what I want to be when I grow up, I have tried a few things so far: Magician, event’s manager, stilt and fire performer, sound engineer, and finally designer. For me design started in industrial design at CPUT, then interaction design in Sweden and finally user experience design at Flow Interactive (Now part of Deloitte Digital). I will never say that I will always be a UX designer, but right now it’s more fun than anything I could ever imagine.
From the beginning of my magic training at the age of eleven, I realised that people have different perspectives of the world and different reactions to the same experiences. From then on, I have been trying to create delightful experiences that make many different people happy in their own special way.
If you would like to go back in time and see some of my older industrial design work, I have a Behance portfolio.
