ABOUT ERIKA

Born and raised in Vancouver. Currently a senior design student at Simon Fraser University’s School of Interactive Arts and Technology.

I’m a designer with one year of experience in UX and UI at Excelar Technologies, where I was designing experiences for clinicians in the lower mainland.

My love for design is driven by my passion for good research that dives deep into a user’s needs. I seek to apply novel strategies in my work, by employing interactions and design techniques that I’ve learned through engaging with many shapes and forms of media.

Outside of design, I have almost six years of experience as a Japanese-English language interpreter for local pop culture events. I’ve also maintained a blog about water for a few months before, alongside being an avid video gamer (currently trying & failing to beat Elden Ring’s DLC).
