What stage of your career are you at?
I am brand spanking new!
Well kinda,I just turned 26, I did 5 years of Help desk / desktop Analyst IT work - Found a passion for web development early last year. Took a Front end boot camp later last year. Lost my job at the end of December due to lay offs at my contracting company which threw me into a spiral with my Web Dev studies. In February I got offer a job as a Banker at a large institution that sports their main color as blue Thus far I've decided I really really like UX /UI and want to still job change into the field... if possible by next June.
What are you current challenges?
Getting a remote job as a UX/UI designer. Or any job at that fact.
I have to pick a boot camp and I hope that will get me ready for this endeavor
What aspect/s of UX are passionate about?
I love beautiful things. Including web apps, mobiles apps, branding and even desktop apps. When I go to a website and it looks clean and the buttons do amazing things, and I can make my way around that site without second guessing myself, it makes me really happy. Designing something like this for companies, businesses etc every day would make me really happy.
Cats or dogs?
I had a Dachshund when I was younger, he was theeeee best.
