In addition to my work at Matthew John Design, I also work at Webflow as a Technical Support Specialist, troubleshooting website issues for Webflow customers.

My story

I’ve had a passion for creating since my early childhood, spending hours on end drawing and visualizing new places and things. At the age of 12, that passion manifested itself in another way when I started building websites and computer games for the first time.

At that age, building websites and games was not only an outlet for creative expression, but was also a catalyst of communication that would help me better connect with my family and friends.

My childhood development was hindered by chronic ear infections, making it difficult to understand what people were saying to me. Repeatedly being met with frustration was a terrifying experience, and the constant inability to comprehend others made it hard for me to feel like I would ever be able to have meaningful interactions.

Despite that challenge, I went on to study 6 different languages in school, traveled abroad, and grew to love helping others through effective communication. After graduating from university, I ultimately found myself back in design where I can most effectively help others.

I currently work at Webflow in Technical Customer Support, troubleshooting website issues for customers. My motto is "be helpful" because being helpful and empowering gives me the greatest sense of fulfillment.
