Hi, I'm Lester! ✌️

As a Product Designer, I'm passionate about creating user experiences that are engaging and meaningful.

My experiences as a Front-End Developer 💻, Project Analyst in the public sector 📋, and teaching in Japan🗼 has taught me to work well with all kinds of people, and feel comfortable in unfamiliar situations.

After living in Japan for 5+ years, I fell in love with the Japanese concept of omotenashi, or putting the guest first. This concept inspired me to become a designer once I returned to Canada. I fell in love with being a designer and I truly believe that great design can make a positive impact on people.
