Since the beginning of my career, I've focused on providing value for users and stakeholders. I love jumping from Research to Product Strategy and Creative Vision to UX/UI design to Production in a highly collaborative, cross-discipline team environment.
Along the way, I have delivered digital products and services—from embedded device UI, 10' UI, mobile UI, interactive social media experiences to SaaS platforms. I can also match a Pantone at a press check, illustrated some mean gig posters, once bowled a 200, and I’ve been known to create art featuring a Lucha libre rock band.
My toolbox currently includes Figma, Sketch, Adobe Creative Suite, Invision, Google Suite, Keynote, Whimsical, and many more – and as always, paper and pen.
