Gloria is A creative who aspires to delight people through art, design and storytelling.

Gloria started out as an artist but later on discovered user experience and interaction design–she has fallen in love with human psychology, problem-solving and systems-thinking ever since. After graduating from the University of Washington with a degree in Interaction Design and a side-focus in Animation, she is now developing her breadth of knowledge and experiences at Fjord in Toronto. During her out-of-office hours, Gloria spends a lot of her time studying visual development to create artworks for her online store. She can often be found roaming the streets of Toronto and making new friends, or travelling somewhere with her camera.

Gloria contributed to the team an excitement for the craft of Design we all eagerly welcomed. In her short time there, she quickly learned more about her craft, her team, and Shopify while providing value with her work.

Shopify’s environment is rather quick-paced and chaotic. Gloria took this in-stride and didn’t let this discourage her and I was continually impressed with her output and growth. Overall, she is committed, enthusiastic, and a quick-learner. I’d imagine she’d make a great addition to any design team.
— Helen Tran, former Design Lead @ shopify
Gloria has excellent design and communication skills. She contributed in a meaningful way to our product design efforts, presenting designs for review in team critiques, presenting design direction to the development team, and documenting designs for team reference.

Gloria is well trained in design techniques and tools, applying them effectively to her creative process. Enthusiastic, communicative and proactive with her contribution, Gloria has demonstrated her ability to be a top candidate for any creative firm or software company.
