Hi! I'm Carrie.

UX Designer & Front-end Developer.

A little about me

I create delightful digital solutions to improve how people accomplish day-to-day tasks. My focus is making people’s lives easier by researching and better understanding them, designing well-thought-out interfaces, testing ideas, and developing solutions.

In December 2017, I will be graduating from the University of Calgary in Computer Science, with a concentration in Human-Computer Interaction and a minor in Visual Studies (Digital Art).
