Why am I an RGD?I am an RGD because I think that the association builds a positive community. Moreover, I believe that exchanging ideas and collaborating is the key to better design. RGD also contributes to bringing a lot more credibility to the design profession.
What is my most memorable RGD moment?- My small webinar in 2019. I got super nervous and talked way too fast; even though I practiced a lot beforehand. I hope I will do it again this year and improve upon it.
