Who Am I?

A little about yours truly and how I work. Let’s build something beautiful together.

“ ”

I am a passionate UI designer with 7 years of experience, obsessed with pixel perfection and the creation of beautiful products.

My goal is to produce functional design solutions by employing user centric design principles. I craft elegant user experiences by distilling high level design concepts into imaginative, insightful, and intelligent products. In my spare time, you may find me on BART surfing around the city or exploring some great hiking trails.

On weekends I’m usually listening to motown classics, snapping photos in VSCO, sitting around my apartment drinking some green tea, or finding inspiration for my designs. I’m available for freelance work. If you’re interested in working with me,lar please drop me a line about your idea. I would like to know about you and your projects.

Research

Every project I embark on starts with research. I define the client’s needs and objectives and assess what design solutions may suit them best.

Design

Once the objective is clear, a series of visual solutions are created. Exploration, refinement and clients approval occur in this stage.

Build

After creating a series of high-end mockups, I build your project and work out any last kinks that need to be addressed before launch.

Launch

Once all ideas are refined and visual solutions are produced, the result is a creation that mirrors the objectives of the client.
