What I love to do

I collaborate with clients and organizations to make meaningful digital and physical experiences and products. I create visual narratives, systems, and solutions through immersing myself into emotions, stories, and contexts. Like magicians and superheroes, I believe good design can make a positive difference in the world. 

Agency projects include Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Nike, Volkswagen, Charles Schwab, Intel, Yahoo! Flickr, University of Phoenix, other start-ups and global brands.

Focus in Visual Design, UX/UI with experience in HCI/Human Centered Design and Branding.
