About Me

vodkaHello. My name is Kelly and I’m a full stack designer with a passion for complex problem solving, community-based initiatives, and environmentalism.

I first started designing websites in 1998 and began my freelance career as I started my Bachelor of Arts from the University of Guelph in 2000. After graduating, I attended Humber College’s Web Design program in the summer of 2004 and have been working full time at a number of companies since then, while continuing my part-time freelance work. In 2010, I enrolled at the Savannah College of Art and Design to work towards my MFA degree in Interactive Design and Game Development through their e-learning program. My breadth of experience and continuing learning has helped me to become a sought-after user experience designer and front end developer. I work with a number of companies as a contract freelancer which enables me to create everything from conceptual workflows to custom jquery banners and everything in between.

Evolving out of my love for user experience design, I have developed a passion and skill for complex problem solving using design thinking. I have found success in taking this approach and applying it to wicked problems to find long term, sustainable solutions. I also love networking with like minded individuals to find productive solutions to local issues in Guelph.
