Hi, I'm Leslie, but you can call me "Lee" for short.
I am a creatively curious UX designer whose approach to design is working collaboratively to create solutions that are both meaningful for users as well as good for the business.
As a design researcher, I rely heavily on empathetic user insights to help me uncover aspects of a design that will inspire, qualify and benefit users & stakeholders.
Despite being a digital product designer, I'm fascinated by all design practices. Whether it's textiles, architecture, or illustrations, I am always eager to learn more. I recently enrolled in a course with the industrial design department to build 3D spaces and objects to apply to XR designs.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my site.
