I put people first.

I'm a self-taught designer who enjoys developing great brand experiences around products people can love and use. My best skill is my ability to empathize.

My Process


I examine the problem space and attempt to better understand the users.


I determine the user's needs, behaviors, and goals through research and in parallel with business initiatives.


I flesh out all type of ideas (the good, the bad, and the experimental)  that can help develop a successful user experience.


I construct my ideas with the purpose of testing to validate or develop new solutions.

This is an iterative process.

A good experience is never "done." In fact, an experience hints at the infinite, the ever-changing. By putting people first the assumption I make is that the products & experiences that I design for them should be just as agile. Just as human.
