I am a San Francisco native—which practically makes me creative by default. This city and its evolution will always inspire and drive me to dig deep as a designer. I have nearly 10 years of design experience, though what really evangelizes me is problem-solving. Upon working with some of the most innovative entrepreneurs, startups and high-profile brands, like Method, Sephora.com and Reading Rainbow, I have been given the autonomy to cultivate thoughtful and meaningful design solutions. The challenges that accompany user behavior and visual communication keep me hungry, while the creative process forces honesty, which is at the heart of my sensibilities as a designer. The value in working by this methodology is priceless, creating a journey that stretches far beyond the idea of designer and the end product. It has the potential to leave deep impression of beautiful, unforgettable design.
