The story of a Bay Area product designer —

& his love for meaningful design & moments of delight

From an early age, I've set out to beautify the digital world we live in everyday. I've been helping folks out, small and large ever since.

Today, I work on clean and accessible product design aiming to improve the way we use technology, focusing on unique and accessible web and mobile design. Specializing in visual and interaction design, I am considered a full stack designer - covering a range including user experience, front end development, product planning and mentorship.

& still making time for the community

From design systems to webflow, I like to stay connected to the community and mentor others. i've also had the pleasure of working with mentorship programs including AIGA, one valley and Linkedin, from individuals to groups, to help them improve on process, communication and execution.
