Product Designer and Engineer based in San Francisco, CA

 

 

 

Background

I started out by studying business for my undergraduate, concentrating in Strategy and Operations Management Science. (Market Research, Product Strategy, Statistics)

After graduating, I began my career at IBM as a consultant, working on projects in primarily business analyst roles. (Requirements Gathering, Optimizing Process Flows, Wireframe, Speciation Documentation)

I eventually transitioned into into UX Design and was promoted into IBM’s Interactive Experience Division. (User Centered Design Process, IA, UI Design, Interaction Design, Prototyping)

Through a combination of side projects and online courses, I worked to deliberately round out my overall Design skill set. (Visual Design, Branding, Usability Testing, User Research, Content Strategy)

Frustrated by an inability to actually build my own designs out, I set out to improve on my engineering skills by building multiple projects using various modern front-end and back-end frameworks. (React-Redux, React Native, Angular,  Node, Express,  Sequelize, Mongoose)

Daily Journal App for Close Groups of Friends

A daily journal app which limits user entries of one hundred characters per day. Since entries are more lightweight, this makes the act of journaling more sustainable while also making each entry a bit less personal. This opens up the ability to share and view the entries of close friends if both parties accept.
