A little bit about myself

Let me briefly introduce my professional journey, where curiosity, empathy, collaboration, and a passion for the design thinking process have been my guiding principles.


Driven by Passion: A Career Highlight Reel

My design journey began with architectural studies and a profound interest in digital interactive design. I started updating the New York City Department of Transportation's first website, marking my debut as a web designer. Since then, I've spearheaded multimillion-dollar projects for industry giants like Lockheed Martin, Walmarts, Marriott Resorts, Sheraton Resorts, and, most recently, IBM. Through the trials of challenges like the aftermath of 9/11, my dedication remained unchangeable. My path has been illuminated by seizing opportunities and an unwavering commitment to excellence.

My Design Process

I abide by four guiding principles that serve as my compass in navigating the complex landscape of design:
Simplicity
Approach

I'm a firm believer that less is more. By simplifying designs, we pave the way for seamless user experiences, free from unnecessary complexity.



User-Centric Approach

Walking in the user's shoes is key to understanding their needs and pain points. Through empathy, I design solutions that directly address these challenges.


Embrace Complication

Rather than shying away from complexity, I see it as an opportunity for improvement. Embracing the challenge fuels innovation and leads to refined solutions.


Design Thinking

By understanding user needs, generating ideas, and testing prototypes, I craft solutions that resonate with users. I use problem-solving through Design Thinking principles.
