Briefly describe your current day-to-day.
I am involved in a mix of design and consulting projects, most of which are for government clients. My day can vary a lot, from client visioning sessions to crafting workplace strategy presentations to collecting and filtering through client programming requirement data. The variety is one of the best parts of the job!.
