“For the past 5 and a half years I’ve been working as a Senior UX Designer with Deloitte Digital in Ireland. I started my career as a graphic designer but made the switch to UX in 2018. I started a Master’s Degree in UX Design and a job at Deloitte Digital, as a Junior UX Designer, on the very same day!

I’ve decided to become a mentor to build my network with fellow curious UX professionals and to share some of the skills and wisdom I’ve acquired over the years.”

What led you to the world of UX?

“In my past life, I cut my teeth working as a graphic designer in small agencies in Dublin helping to bring brands to life. Part of this work often included designing custom websites and as the years went by I realised this was an aspect of design that I particularly enjoyed.

I decided to explore this interest and pursued a Masters in UX in 2018 and never looked back. The friends I made during the Masters, and the senior UX designers who I’ve worked with over the years, have shaped who I am as a designer today completely.”

What advice do you have for future mentees and UX designers?

“Deeply immerse yourself in the users’ world to understand all their challenges and frustrations. By doing this you can craft truly creative and useful solutions.”
