Me, standing atop an overlook on my recent trip to Zion, Utah

I'm Amadeus Cameron

I am a people-person. I love listening to people's stories and understanding why we do the things we do. Studying UX Design @ SCAD, I plan on changing the world through human-centered design, by understanding people the best I can.

Like others my age, I started design with LEGOs and Minecraft. As I grew older, I started paying closer attention to the design around me - and how we can make it better. As I begin my design career, vital skill of mine is adapting to any project's needs. Currently, I am fond of learning about people's habits and beliefs through qualitative UX research, as well as testing my ideas and learning from them.

I love being a part of something bigger than myself. I have had incredible opportunities as an officer for FLUX to create workshops for my peers, forge undergrad-to-undergrad and student-to-industry connections, and co-direct the student-run design competition StartUp.

Finally, when I'm not working, I am exploring. Whether it be creative exploration, like a rabbit hole into how to create rugs, or cross-country road trips, I think that there is beauty in wandering.
