User Experience Design Junior – 2023

Wanting to combine my love and skills for design and technology, I pivoted to pursue a degree in User Experience Design. As a junior at Bradley, I’ve found the hype for a human-centered approach, projects with purpose, and I feel like I’m starting my career now. At Bradley, I’ve been able to work with real clients, talented professors, and other skilled students on a variety of projects. If you’re chilling on campus, you can find me in groups like Bradley STARs, the Honors Program, and in the FUSE project, Theia, where I am the team lead. Some of my interests include drawing, biking, traveling, and skateboarding. Now, I’m thinking of ways to fuse these into a kickflip of career path.

Theia: a distant exoplanet, home to a number of diverse alien lifeforms, is now on the brink of ecological collapse. However, Gaia Enterprises is on a mission to revive the planet and has chosen you to join their expedition. You will create your very own unique and vibrant plant life to grow on Theia- be it a tree, a flower, or a new type of growth!

In augmented reality, explorers will be able to customize their own plant to their liking with thousands of possible combinations. Before leaving the planet, each explorer will be able to take home a photo of their creation, so that they can remember the impact they made.
