Hi, I’m Leslie, a Vancouver based UX|UI designer.

I help products and services deliver meaningful experiences and aesthetics.

Solving problems fuels my enthusiasm. I enjoy utilizing design research and IA to shape technology to be delightful to use. Transformed from communication design to UX, I found passion in incorporating human-centred insights into design and bringing them to fruition with emotion and empathy. 

I believe a genuine understanding of other people can lead to impactful connections between human and technology, which in turn will result in improvements in how we live and communicate.

My neurological disorder of synaesthesia super-powered me for being extra-sensitive for cross-sensory experiences. For this reason,  I am now grateful for having the aptitude to embrace every moment that I encounter in life.
