I'm Jay, a product designer from Toronto, currently working as an UX designer at Amazon in Seattle. I'm a maker by nature and believe a great idea requires a solid foundation to execute, validate, and iterate. With this in mind, I strive to develop robust, scalable design systems that meet both user and business needs.
