So introducing myself again: My name is Joseph-Albert Kuuire. I'm from Accra, Ghana. My passion for trying to solve problems led to a path to User Experience design.
I'm a self taught designer who learnt mostly from YouTube videos, Medium posts, general practice and real world experience. I dabbled in animation and prototyping but my primary focus in UX is on user interface design and user research.
My professional career started off as an Information Security Auditor for 3 years before I decided to switch career paths to UX Design. I started off as a Technical Lead for a Usability Testing startup lab called Userhub Africa.
I later got hired by Flutterwave as a UX Designer.
When I'm not working, I'm busy writing and editing for my digital news platform called Technovagh.com. The platform covers technology in the Ghana tech space including social media, agriculture and government.
I also write poetry, fictional short stories and play video games in my spare time.
