A surrealist illustration

Are your looking for a UX Researcher?

I'm a seasoned Bay Area Product Designer based. I have collaborate with cross functional teams of venture-backed startups, agencies, and enterprise clients on multiple geographies.

I spent the past years working as a Freelance Product Designer and, I'm orienting my career into User Experience Search & Design through UC Berkeley.

I am seeking to transition from Product Design into a User Experience Research role and looking to develop an expertise around accessibility.

On my free time, I'm a watercolor painter and a door hunter. Also, I hate bell peppers.

I'm looking for new ventures in UX

I am a seasoned Product Designer seeking to use proven UX Design and Research skills to enhance user experience and develop expertise in accessibility. I am aiming for a first position as UX Researcher backed by a decade of successful projects in various industries across multiple-geographies.

I approach every problematic with an open and curious mind. Empathy is key to my work, not just for the user but for all involved. In that way, I think that designing for "accessibility first" in one of the keys of a successful user experience.

Meeting users, becoming their advocate, analyzing their feedback to iterate design solutions have been my motor to transition into the UX field. These Case Studies are part of projects I presented during my year at UC Berkeley.
