Hi, I'm Joey Manata
Currently, I am a Junior at Bradley University. I came to Bradley as a Game Design major with a minor in User Experience, but quickly discovered a love for User Experience. Growing up, I have always enjoyed working with computers and technology, now I am able to combine my passion for technology and my love for design with the use of Adobe products. I grew up in a suburb outside of Chicago and have been lucky to have been able to enjoy the museums and other cultural amenities that the city has to offer. In my free time, I enjoy exercising and playing video games.
