I've had a unique path leading up to design.
I studied math & information systems at Waterloo, which helped me become data-driven and systematic in my design (data is cool 📈)
After university, I worked in finance & valuations. I researched and interviewed hundreds of businesses to build cases for litigations & forensic investigations🕵️
I'm grateful to have found design — where my passion, skills, and experiences seemed to have collided. And now I'm on a mission to give back and create meaningful impact. Here are few things I'm doing:
Building awesome communities
Helping others discover their true talent - I've been mentoring my once-interns for the 3rd year now
Practicing kindness each day 🙂
3 (fun) facts about me
01 / My nickname in high school was "Jean Machine," which was the name of a popular clothing brand back then. Sadly the company went down, but here I am, continuing on the legacy 🤖
02 / I learned Spanish in a university language program in Medellin, Colombia. Gracias Señor Jose, puedo hablar español que viajo sin problemas!
