I’ve been designing stuff since, well, forever. Started out in print, then web — and recently I decided it was time to upgrade my skills, so I studied User Experience Design at General Assembly in Seattle. It was an intense, 10-week immersive program that exposed me to various tools and techniques for user research, iterative sketching and diagramming; creating taskflows, personas, wireframes, and prototypes; and usability testing. I worked on web and mobile applications in continuous two-week sprints in an Agile environment, creating some of the projects that can be seen here.
A longstanding interest in Psychology led me to study Ontological Coaching awhile back, an area that I believe enhances my skills in Graphic, Visual, and especially UX Design. As a certified coach, I've been working with clients for several years now; coaching is all about active listening, motivational speaking, storytelling, and above all, empathy — all of which I have found to be quite useful in a User Experience context.
I’m passionate about solving complex conceptual, visual, and usability problems; creating powerful, effective digital experiences; and making the world a better place. I also love to draw, paint, write, travel, obsess about film, mess up the kitchen in pursuit of the perfect homemade mole poblano, and attempt to play guitar.
