Hello, my name is Toby.

I am a UI / UX designer and graphic designer that loves to create digital experiences. I am interested in creating experiences that connect people and bring new ideas to life through visual design and augmented reality. I am always studying the world around me to find what could be improved and thinking about how those challenges could be overcome.

What I was Made to Do

From the time I got my first iPod, I was hooked on technology and wanted to make a career in the technology industry. Throughout the years, I discovered my passion for helping people and solving problems. I am always studying the world around me, finding what can be improved to make life easier for people. User Interface / User Experience Design combines my passions, allowing me to create fun and engaging experiences that enhance people's lives. This is why I feel I was meant to be a UI / UX Designer.
