A certified fútbol fanático ⚽, a discerning taco enthusiast 🌮, and
a practiced dog whisperer 🐕.

Those are just  a few words to describe me, but I’m also a Product Designer with nine years of professional experience  currently residing in sunny NoHo, Los Angeles. Originally, I'm from a three stoplight town in Texas by way of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I consider myself a New Yorker at heart. I've had the privilege of working for a range of companies in media, consulting, energy, and healthcare spaces, including Marvel Comics, NBC Universal, and Kaiser Permanente.

Some of my skills & experiences include the ones you might expect (UX / UI design, IA, prototyping, design leadership) and some you might not (NFT's, VUI, illustration, and product strategy).  I'm a design pragmatist that loves trying to work around design constraints and turn them into advantages. Plus, I'm always ready to lend a hand and tell a team member the difference between a queso taco and a vampiro taco. Hate designing for edge cases because that just tells everyone what you don't care about. I design solutions for everyone.

When I'm not solving design problems, I like reading Magical realism books like "The Master and Margarita", searching for the newest car wash serving Mexican/Indian fusion, obsessing over my favorite club Arsenal, or just building doll houses for my son's tarantula.
