I'm

Donald,

nice to meet you.

I’m a Chicagoland-based Product and UX designer with a passion for understanding the interactions between people and technology. I am currently a senior studying Computer Graphics Technology at Purdue University Northwest.

I'm obsessed with the design of well... everything. My design philosophy is that end-to-end product and user experiences should be useful, functional, and accessible. My goal is to use technology to increase the quality of user’s lives rather than hinder it. I am very detail-oriented and take pride in gaining insight from meeting new people and learning about their perspectives.

In my free time, you can find me discovering new music, hanging out with friends, watching technology and lifestyle-related videos, and drinking coffee. The city is one of my favorite places, so you can likely find me working in a coffee shop in downtown Chicago when I can (Goddess And The Baker is my favorite 😊).

While taking courses such as Principles of User Experience Design, User Experience Design I/II, User Interface Design I/II, Usability Testing & Analysis, Foundations of Computer Graphics Technology, Computer Graphics Programming, Web Design, and more, I have gained experiences and skills such as...

UX/UI Design

High-Fidelity Mockups

User Needs Analysis

User Personas & Flows

Protoyping & Wireframing

Heuristic Analysis

Journey Mapping

Data Analysis

I'm currently in my last semester at Purdue University Northwest with an anticipated graduation date of Spring 2021.
