Work Experience

airG - PRODUCT DESIGNER 2011 - PRESENT
I've worked on various projects at airG, from BlackBerry, Android, iOS and mobile web social apps to data/metric tracking web tools. I’ve built some from the ground up, creating the product vision, collaborating with team members and working within the business goals and requirements. Others have already been built and I’ve either redesigned or improved upon them. Throughout this process I do a mix of work: user research, personals, journey maps, site maps, wireframes, flow charts, prototypes, design documents, creative briefs, user stories, copy writing, micro-interactions.

EA POGO - USER EXPERIENCE DESIGN INTERN 2010
I was a UX Design Intern for EA Pogo in Montreal. I worked on the Pogo website as well as the Facebook App with the two lead UX Designers. I made use of site maps, various wire framing tools, Flash prototyping, user testing and remote collaboration.

HANSEN PHOTOGRAPHY - OWNER AND PHOTOGRAPHER 2006-2010
I have enjoyed being an entrepreneur by creating a successful part-time photography business. I set up the business aspects and acquired clients, maintaining a good relationship with them. I have done a number of indoor and outdoor events, including weddings, sports and corporate meetings. I managed all client acquisition, web design, sales and finance.

OTHER PAST EXPERIENCES
TD WATERHOUSE PRIVATE INVESTMENTS - RECEPTION 2009
I worked in a professional and organized manner with a large team in a high pressure, fast paced environment. I was the first point of contact for high standing clients and oversaw all new accounts to ensure information was completed correctly. I organized a large amount of data, client appointments, events and catering. The office appreciated my ability to keep it running smoothly and I enjoyed the challenges of multi-tasking and keeping on track.

Not as relevant, but possibly of interest to you, I’ll mention as a side note that I also was a self employed piano teacher for 8 years through high school and University, and I worked at a dog daycare for a couple years, and was an intern at the Calgary Zoo Wildlife Conservation Centre - all of which were incredible experiences that have helped shape who I am today. If you want any more info feel free to ask me!
