Hey! I'm Cassandra and I love creating digital products. I’m based in beautiful Vancouver and am currently a senior product designer at Microsoft. I'm also currently getting my masters in human computer interaction at the Rochester Institute of Technology (almost done!). I've wanted to be a designer since I was fourteen years old and haven't looked back since.
When I'm not at work I like to teach and mentor designers entering the field. Helping a new generation of designers is extremely important to me. And when I'm not at my computer I like going on ridiculously long walks/hikes, reading, and painting. I also enjoy taking on interesting freelance projects. Reach out if you'd like to connect!
I've been a design mentor and teacher for over four years and would love to help you in your journey as a designer. I've mentored over 100 aspiring designers, who I still have great relationships with to this day. I didn't receive a ton of help in my early career and I know how much the people around you can propel you forward or hold you back. So, if there's anything you'd like to discuss, from learning specific elements of design, to getting a job, please feel free to reach out. I promise I'm friendly!
If you'd like to book a one-on-one mentorship session with me then you can do so right here.
