Professional background: Product Designer at Kablamo

I am a multidisciplinary Product Designer, who is driven to understand why people do what they do. I care about people’s motivations, pain points and  behaviour patterns – which I use as opportunities to empower. With a background in psychology, I bring a deep understanding of how to build empathy with others and use this to deliver strategic solutions to individuals, communities and organisations.

What’s your motivation for becoming a DiR?

I am passionate about connecting with emerging talent to enable them to achieve their goals, and watch them grow in both their professional and personal endeavors. I also love the community of designers here at Academy Xi and enjoy collaborating with current leaders in the design industry.

What are your hobbies and interests?

Reading, cooking and travel

What is one book you’d recommend to read or watch?

Abstract (technically a TV series), it will introduce you to different types of design and helps you to find inspiration
