Let's Build Your Next Product

I love working on projects that have a positive impact on their users and the world. Whether that’s finding the right doctor for your condition, or just meeting your next friend to help you pass that next level, the ability that technology has given us to connect and grow it’s a beautiful thing that I’m passionate about.

I've Helped Brands Connect with Their Audience. Here Are Some of Them:

  • Maria Sharapova
  • World Anti-Doping Administration
  • Disney's Pixar
  • Disney
  • (RED)

I Love Learning New Technologies

One of the things I enjoy the most, aside from building large lego creations or playing video games, is learning about new technologies and how those new technologies affect the things we do for the users we’re building products for.

Leadership and Design United

I've had the opportunity to be both a contributing member as well as leader of design and cross-functional teams. I'm proud of my ability to connect with others. Empathy is my primary tool when I begin designing new products and lead teams to achieve their goals.

Process to Products and Features

  • Planning and Vision

    We discuss the vision and the plan to achieve it. We'll create a timeline and work together to set up a cross-functional team up for success with a particular new feature or product.

  • Research and Empathy

    I like to approach my designs with empathy and understanding of the user. We'll do some research with interviews to our target audience, as well as, define and test our wireframes.

  • Conceptualization and Validation

    We'll work with your brand and build a full system around it. We'll make some prototypes of the product or features and test them with our audience to validate our ideas before we develop.

  • Development

    With my knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and others I can help build/support and/or assist the engineering team with your product after design is completed.

  • Analysis and Repeat

    We launch the product, but we're not done, we're going to analyze and continue working to improve it and give the audience the best possible experience possible.

Leadership Philosophy

  • Guiding & Mentoring

    I connect with my team members and I try to understand what goals they have in sight, so I can put them on the right path while working on the projects.

  • Members First

    I put my team first. I make sure they have a safe space to express any concerns, comments, and feedback, to make a stronger and united team.

  • Feedback & Evolution

    With a branch of the Agile Philosophy, I like to use sprints and retros to better understand and built a stronger team with feedback and actionable items.

Getting Inspired by the Problem

The beauty of the web is that it continuously evolves every day. That's why I get inspired by problems and the people that face them. It gives me the motivation to create solutions and continue working to enhance and give the users an unforgettable experience. Here are some of the case studies from work that I've done.

  • Gamer's Hive is a networking platform for gamers who are looking to find others at their same skill level to play together or build a gaming team.

  • MesotheliomaGuide is an informative site that helps connect patients with the help they need to fight this disease.

  • AddictionCenter helps family members and patients suffering from addiction find a place to get treated and get back on-track with their lives.
