About

In my career, it’s been a pleasure working with many talented and passionate people along the way. Striving for a shared goal of developing the best experience for the user.

I’ve been lucky, working with many wonderful companies. Just to name a few, Beckman Coulter, UnoCal 76 Petroleum and Agriproducts, Orange County Social Services, Valicia Salon, Balance Energy Studios, Clay Collaborations and Gexco.

When I’m not designing, you’ll find me outdoors, taking a walk, hanging at beach pretending that I still know how to surf or throwing the ball for my dog. But most likely I’m in the backyard cutting the grass and doing yard work.

I have always had a deep desire to learn. Whether completing the Web Design Certificate Program at UCI to increase my UX knowledge or taking tutorials on Lynda.com. I am currently reading the “Road to Learn React”, “React Design Patterns and Best Practices”, and “React Native in Action”, to add to my knowledge of coding. Additionally, I still work with Varsity Tutors to help me understand best practices.
