Marc Tessier

My degree in Environmental Design developed my eye for details, and introduced me to user-centric design as well as environmentalism. From there I pursued a career in hospitality, developing my passions for flavours/aromas, human interactions, and further expanding my creative outlets while keeping sustainability in mind. Hospitality taught me how to help people relax and open up, and how to read body language. Combining these skills with my impulse for deep research, I took the UX Design Bootcamp at BrainStation in order to create positive social and environmental change on a larger scale (animal welfare, waste management, sustainable food models, etc…)
