My name is Sharon C Williams Nelson but I go by the acronym of shacawine. I am a 27-year-old Panamanian/Spanish interaction designer with a Master's Degree from Umeå Insitute of Design. I have a background in design engineering, industrial design, storytelling and animation. I believe in fun and reflection as part of the design process, and in time as a crucial but often forgotten dimension of design.
