Aside from designing and drawing, I also posses the compulsion to get lost in thought; in the most tangible sense, this manifests itself in writing. Here is a collection of rabbit holes that shape who I am (as a designer).
How could you describe interaction design to someone who doesn’t know interaction design?
Interaction: reciprocal action or influence
Influence: the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something, or the effect itself
A particular way in which matter, fields, and atomic and subatomic particles affect one another
I would describe interaction design as the reaction that has been programmed into (the) technology contingent on the users’ command. (Regardless of action—it can be led by voice, touch, motion, etc).
2. What kind of person are you?
passionate, self-aware, considerate, observant, introspective
3. What’s the difference between information architecture and user experience?
Information architecture provides the structure and logic to a given flow of actions. User experience
Information architecture and (rather than vs.) user experience. Is the masculine (logical) and (emotional) feminine version of the same output: clarity and structure in guiding the user. Information architecture builds the foundation, user experience brings it to the next level. It is a symbiotic relationship and necessity in sustainability and a classic (timeless) design solution.
4. Where do you want to work?
In a collaborative environment.
“It is easy to fool ourselves into thinking we are mature if there is no one to challenge us.” I want to mature as a designer, discover my strengths and weaknesses through my relationship with others.
5. Describe the traits that a great UX designer would possess.

the ability to define value, prioritize, and consider trade-offs
a holistic thinker: through a macro and micro lens
having the ability to see the scope of the problem and the clarity to parse it down to its essence
receptive to feedback:
keeping an open mind, the ability to juggle conflicting viewpoints, the implicit understanding that no solution is perfect; design is ever-changing
