Speaking & Teaching Experience

My journey is one of continuous learning and sharing knowledge with others. When I was a college student, I learned about careers in design from passionate professors who were active designers. Early in my technical career, I learned about UX and software design from senior colleagues who loved solving problems with empathy. My philosophy is “Each One, Teach One” and “Anyone can be great, because anyone can serve.” (Dr. MLK, Jr.).
