About me

I design thoughtful user interfaces & web experiences

I’m a critical thinker, a creative problem-solver, but above all, I’m a believer in simplicity. My approach to design is a balancing act between thought and intuition, utility and beauty.

I’m interested in understanding the ways people interact online, and the different pathways they take to get to what they need. But at the end of the day, weaving visuals, messaging, and interaction together to tell a story seamlessly is what makes me happy.

When I’m not jamming at my desk, I’m shamelessly watching reruns of Buffy, planning my next road trip, or bumming around the beach. And if that’s not enough, I’m fluent in French. Bon!

My side-pancake

I’m also a devout animal lover and human to a large and goofy rescue dog. My passion project 🐺 Howl & Home 🐺 is a creative outlet where I get to design and sell high-end dog bowls and furniture for design conscious fur-parents like myself. All items are handmade with love from beautiful British Columbia.

Tina does an amazing job balancing what’s on her plate while staying on top of the latest developments in UX/UI and brings a steady stream of innovation and new ideas to the studio daily.

Working with Tina is a developer’s dream!
Her incredible expertise in UI and UX design converted perfectly in every technical aspect of my work. It’s rare to find a designer with such a broad vision and knowledge, that can deeply understand the development process, and easily find solutions and innovative approaches with a constant respect for technical limitations and requirements.

I’ve worked with countless designers over the course of the last decade in digital, and Tina is truly top notch. While checking all the boxes you’d expect of a UX & Design specialist, there are skills that Tina brings which are rare. A no BS approach. Pushing design further when you think it’s already there. Empathy driven design. All while being in touch with the most current design trends.
