What do I do

Product Design

Often the best products are the ones that focus on the business needs & users wants. Conducting user research, discovery interviews, and usability testing gives me the ability to identify the problems, create solutions and validate them with users. Product design is a team sport, so I like to work closely with product management and engineer teams to create the best experience possible.

Front-end Development

In order to bring a great experience to a product, it's best to create functional prototypes. For that I design and develop high-fidelity prototypes using HTML, CSS, JavaScript. I also have experience building front-end architecture systems that use frameworks like Sass, jQuery and handlebars.js.

Design Systems

From creating branding standards to standardizing design patterns, I take the pleasure in building guidelines for components that increase efficiency and scalability.
