Profile Gerlyanne
About

Hi, my name is Gerlyanne, but you can call me Ge.
I am a UX/UI Designer located in Toronto, Canada. I started my journey in the design universe back in 2008 when I decided to open a company to sell my original design. Later on, I pursued an architectural technologist diploma, which kept me engaged with design in various ways, through my work, freelancing, and studies.
In 2019 while still working as an architectural technologist I became passionate about UX/UI designer, and more I studied more I was sure that that’s the career I wanted for my future. To achieve my new life goal, I enrolled in several courses and used my previous experience as an advantage to fast learn and improve my expertise in the field.

Cheers!
