Before choosing a career in design, I was drawn and inspired by musical creators. I have always wanted to tap into my creative side and help create products that could be enjoyed by multitude of people. I have always envied music producers who were able to create a digital product and share their work with the world.
As I was realizing my true calling, I was currently heading for a career path in finance. At this point, I had to pivot away from that, in order to create things people love to interact with. This passion geared me into UX because it was an area more viable for my skillset, unlike music.
Today I am proud to say that I love my field of work because it does not feel like work. I am able to make a living by blending my passions for the digital world, people, and design. Just like most music creators, they love working with people and share their ideas, which gives me another reason to enjoy my work. My true pleasure and motivation stems from the idea of people being able to enjoy something I helped create. That part alone lets me know that I am exactly where I should be.
When I am not designing I enjoy working out, spending time with family and playing video games. Another hobby of mine is to taste different things, both literally and figuratively in order to see what else I enjoy in life. This is also something that feeds my creative cravings, though it helps me with ideas for work that I put out.
