What I’ve Worked On

I am responsible for creating fluid experiences and responsive applications. My responsibility is to guide and define the visual designs, design patterns, animations and interactions. Identify and troubleshoot UX design problems during conception and those that arise during implementation. Build prototypes for the purpose of:

  • Rapid Iterations
    Assisting designers and stakeholders in experiencing various design iterations to gain design feedback and help move through the design process
  • Usability Testing
    Defining use scenarios and test before committing to development resources
  • Development Deliverable
    Working closely with engineering team to provide a proof of concept deliverable with expected behavior, style and animation values that can be easily converted to production code

I bridge the gap between design and development to ensure what clients sign off in design functions and looks accordingly in the end product

What I’m Really Good At

As both a designer and engineer, I am able to:

  • Design UX & UI for Natural & Voice, Interaction Design, Visual and Brand Design Experience, Motion Design, Design Patterns and UI Development
  • Experience building & designing app and ensuring a cohesive experience from the smallest of mobile phone screens all the way to living room experiences
  • Clear vision and strategic roadmap for the UX practice, design-centered processes, as well as proven methodologies for identifying and solve problems

  • Conduct user-centered design methods, including user research and synthesis, exploration, storytelling, detailed design, user testing and prototyping to help drive and affirm design direction
  • Expertise in working with cross functional teams
  • Solid understanding and experience of marketing and advertising principles
