UX | UI | PRODUCT DESIGNER 

I'm a Product Designer from the San Francisco Bay Area. I love designing meaningful,
user-centric applications that deliver real value to users.  

I'm curious about what makes people tick and strive to find ways to deliver digital joy.

I understand and apply user experience principles, methodologies, and best practices
for web and mobile technologies. 

I'm collaborative, love to learn and share my knowledge and experiences
with others along the way.
