Improving user experiences through research, empathy, and simplicity.

Hi again, I’m Drake, a UX Designer who is passionate about crafting unique online experiences and turning complex issues into simplistic and meaningful digital solutions. Simply put, I like to design interfaces that solve problems, look beautiful, and work well.

While obtaining my undergraduate degree at The University of Waterloo in Global Business & Digital Arts, I was able to join one of Canada's largest banks, The Bank of Montreal Financial Group, as a UX Design Intern and assist in re-designing the Capital Markets website. Upon graduating, I moved to Milan in 2016 to pursue my Master’s of Web Design & Digital Media. During this time, I was able to further my education and gain technical proficiencies in both front-end development and design platforms including Sketch, Invision, Principle, and various programs within the Adobe Suite.

Since graduating, I have began my career as a UX/UI designer at Qwentès Italia where I work with brands within the Italian Fashion industry, such as the LVMH Group.

When I am not working, you can usually catch me travelling the world, eating delicious Italian food or playing basketball.

Always looking to solve new problems.
