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

I help products and services to deliver meaningful experiences and beautiful appearances. 

My analytical mind makes me a problem-solver. I enjoy utilizing design research and IA to shape technology to products that are delightful to use. My passion comes from incorporating human-centred insights into product designs, 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 results in improvements in how we live and communicate.

Being super-powered with synaesthesia, I am a highly-sensitive person. When I’m not designing, meditation is a big part of my life.
