Alexis Waller made her mark in Australia at Re: Sydney and is now a Senior Designer working at Apple in California. I saw her speak at an AGDA First Five Out event a few years ago and remember her explaining the rather unconventional path she took to becoming a designer. She was a dancer for years before even considering a career in design, and I love hearing these stories where people discover a passion for something when they least expect it. Her talk had a lot of fire from memory, and I have no doubt she’s bringing that same energy to the US.
