My name is Connelly Kekai Morris and I am a User Experience (UX) Designer enrolled at the Savannah College of Art and Design. I grew up in a small town near Buffalo NY, but I have a love of travel and trying new experiences, I plan on being a life long learner. I connect well with people, making me a great team player and Qualitative Researcher.
As a designer I find my passion, discovering user needs, finding creative ways to reimagine systems and services and providing users with tangible outcomes. My goal for the future is to incorporate sustainable systems into cutting-edge technology, by creating a thoughtful experience that exceeds the user's expectations.
Outside of design, I enjoy cooking, being outside, and staying active. I gravitate towards projects that design for all with inclusive intention. In my free time, you can find me reading Simone de Beauvoir or Jan Chipchase and listening to NPR Tiny Desk concerts.

"And the truth that anyone can clearly see that humanity is split into two categories of individuals
with manifestly different clothes, faces, bodies, smiles, movements, interests, and occupations;
these differences are perhaps superficial; perhaps they are destined to disappear.
What is certain is that for the moment they exist in a strikingly obvious way. "
– Simone de Beauvoir
