Introduction

Yes my name is really Carrera and yes, I was named after the Porsche. After graduating the New Media Design and Web development program at BCIT, I worked as an interaction designer at Elevator Strategy. I was responsible for designing and developing user-centric media that communicates meaning through intuitive design based on inherent human behaviour. After working there for 1.5 years, I am looking for a position where I can utilize and further refine these skills. I feel strongly about technological advancements and how they need to be accessible and fun for everyone, which is why I am interested in UI and UX design.

Personal Profile

I am hard working, devoted and dedicated to every one of my projects, always putting in 110%. I am able to separate myself from the project enough to think like an outsider and view the projects from all sides to assess and find design flaws and solutions.

I live on the North Shore and spend my free time hiking, cooking or working on new projects. I love researching different techniques and staying up to date with latest trends and what people are sharing online.
