About


I am UX Designer with over 8 years experience in GAMES, WEB and MOBILE APPS.

I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a BFA (Bachelors in Fine Arts) and MET (Masters in Entertainment Technology).

I design products that are effortless and delightful for its users to engage with. I work collaboratively with developers and managers, incorporating internal and external feedback to ensure the product is delivered at its optimum quality and within scope.

I pride myself in having both artistic and technical skill and have been working as a hybrid designer and project manager since 2009.
