Hi, I’m Jermaine!

Currently a UX Designer at Interactive Ontario and CDMI @ UTSC.

Curious, empathetic, and resourceful, I’m a UX designer who believes in the boundless capability of engaging digital experiences in motivating, teaching, and empowering those who interact with them. As designers, I believe we have a responsibility to the public to provide accurate, accessible, and comprehensible information.

My education has made me a well-rounded multidisciplinary learner, with a wide range of experience creating digital projects.

My versatility as a creator has made me effective at producing well researched, and memorable experiences backed by empathy and great storytelling.

I’m watching movies

For as long as I can remember I’ve been obsessed with record keeping and logging. Alongside an appreciation of film I developed taking film studies courses in high school all the way through university, I’m now attempting to keep a running diary of every movie I’ve ever seen.

I’m taking photos

My never ending desire to document is what got a camera in my hand the first few times, and the first time I took a photo I was proud of has been the feeling that’s kept me taking photos 11 years later. Photography was my medium of choice in my studio art minor at U of T and continuing forward as a designer, I think it’s incredibly important that designers maintain creative outlets.

Below are some of my favourite photos I’ve taken.

As soon as I can flip reset, I’m joining NRG Esports. I swear.
