Hi there,
I'm Gavin.

pronouns: he/him/his

I’m a UX designer born and raised on the unceded, ancestral lands of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations currently known as Vancouver, BC.

I obtained my Bachelor of Arts at Simon Fraser University majoring in Communications with a minor in Print & Digital Publishing. Pursuing my interests in social innovation, led me to work for local organizations focused on supporting underrepresented communities across sectors from health, education to arts and culture.

My journey into design began when I was working at a small non-profit, where I was given the opportunity to help redesign their website. While taking on this project, I had the chance to work closely with a team of designers and developers.

It was during this time that I came to learn about design thinking, and I found myself drawn to the process of how rough ideas and sketches would materialize into tangible solutions. This experience also offered a more intimate look into the ways tech and design could be used as meaningful drivers for social change, which further inspired my pivot into this field.

As a designer, I blend my background in communications with my practice in community engagement to identify thoughtful and empathy-driven solutions to intricate problems. Through my work, I’m committed to building digital experiences that not only aim to resonate with, but are also inclusive and accessible to the people who encounter them.
