"Good aesthetics are only half the battle. Great user experience is built from empathy."

OBJECTIVE:

A UX + UI Designer looking to push the envelope of what interactivity can do. I’m very interested in how users interact with functional applications, and coming from the SAAS industry, I try to translate prior experience into a better understanding of people and their usability needs. Whether it's creating a full application or a button, I try to think two steps ahead, in terms of interactive ergonomics and the evolution of Human–computer interaction. I am a firm believer that good aesthetics are only half the battle. Great user experience is built from empathy. Always in touch with my inner consumer and well aware of what brings attention to a product or service, I myself, can draw inspiration from a well-marketed hamburger wrapper. My creative vision is to keep fresh ideas on the table much like your mother kept fresh fruit. I know that every marketing arena is perpetually changing and I will evolve with each outlet, the many facets, and every paradigm shift. In order to keep a modernistic approach, I follow a simple mantra:

1: view everything creative as inspiration
2: swish those ideas around like mouthwash for the brain
3: repeat. And, above all | STAY CREATIVE

Clients that I have worked with:

Intuit, AARP, Oakley, TVG, Experian, Cars.com, Exclusive Resorts, Shiseido, Biergarden of Encinitas

CAPABILITY:

A good logo can make or break a franchise but so can an awesome user experience.


BRANDING + STRATEGY

Whether it's brand or digital strategy, views from both ground level & 30,000 ft are necessary.

UX + UI

I have a knack for sorting through demographic details to accomplish usability goals and engaging end users.

WEB DESIGN + DEVELOPMENT

Good design isn't everything, a well constructed product must function seemlessly.
