I graduated from UC Irvine in 2018 with a major in Informatics and specialization in Human-Computer Interaction. UX has been a career I've been pursuing since I was a junior in high school. I was inspired when I took a tour through Zynga (creators of Farmville), and was introduced to the GUI team. It was interesting to see how design and coding could be combined as a pursuable career. I initially pursued front-end development, but realized I was much more suited to design and switched after completing my first year as Computer Science.
I switch hobbies pretty often, but I'm currently obsessed with keyboards, ramen, boba, archery and bunnies.
