But who are any of us really?

Recently, I had been working as a graphic designer for a design agency in Seattle called Tether. I've now taken the steps to become a UX/UI Designer with research experience.

My favorite design tool is Figma, though I also like working in Sketch, Adobe XD, Webflow, and others.

The Details

I'm a UX/UI Designer with a background in Graphic Design who wants to create products that can help people relate to themselves and others better. I also have experience in Illustration, game design, 3D modeling, and packaging.

I have over a year of agency experience in all the areas of a visual communication practice, such as strategic thinking, branding, interaction design, rapid prototyping, website development, storyboarding, campaigns, and packaging. Executing thoughtful, engaging, and meaningful work is my everlasting goal. As a Graphic Designer in Seattle, I worked with many large clients such as Amazon, Microsoft, Gatorade, PepsiCo, Ross Department Stores, and many more.

As a designer who’s a graduate of the Academy of Art University, I’m also a fervent storyteller who loves to create engaging work with refined sensibilities. I pride myself on my ability to find a wellspring of passion in all of my creative pursuits. I love working with a team where I can share my ideas, strengthen my skills, learn, and become a stronger designer while creating clean experiences for users.

I am currently looking for work in the Seattle area as a UX/UI Designer. If you have any questions regarding my work, would like to work together or just want to say hi, please don’t be shy and drop me a line anytime.

I know a thing or two on how to make

I helped develop many internal campaigns for PepsiCo and a children's toy packaging line for Ross Department Stores. I also have a BFA in Graphic Design from The Academy of Art University.
