About

I am constantly seeking opportunities to grow and upgrade myself, and so to this end, I involve myself actively in activities and allign myself with organisations and causes that share my conviction that continuous development and its persuit are the true expressions and intentions of education. The one must grow with, from and benefit the whole. I'm presently expanding my solid experience in Web design and connecting with people I meet every day in my day job as a public affairs intern. I focus on using my interpersonal skills to build good user experience and create a strong interest in my employers. I hope to develop my skills in design thinking and my knowledge of the Web, and become an honest asset to the global community. I am told I work especially well under pressure, and alright without it. That is therefore my life's persuit: the constant application of pressure, for that is how diamonds and beautiful useful things are formed.
Utility over aesthetics.
