I have over a decade of experience in crafting user-friendly and engaging digital products at various agencies, startups, and Fortune-500 companies in a wide variety of industries, including fintech, health, energy, and SaaS.
I create user-friendly and engaging digital products as a Product Designer and Front-End Developer.
Growing up in an environment that frowns upon self-expression, I found myself compelled to independently master the realms of design and development.
My fascination was ignited around the age of fourteen, amidst the confines of our family home's basement, nestled in the tranquil embrace of a Massachusetts suburb. With unwavering determination, I scoured the vast expanse of the internet in search of Photoshop tutorials. I diligently downloaded entire websites onto my computer, immersing myself in the intricacies of their source code — shifting elements here and there, all to decipher their impact on the final output. Interestingly, I managed to cloak my hobby as diligent schoolwork, successfully deceiving my parents.
By the time I reached the age of sixteen, I had already begun taking on modest freelance assignments for local businesses. I used the extra money to upgrade my computer and buy books to expand my knowledge.
After I graduated from high school, I quickly got my first full-time position as a graphic designer. Over a decade later, I've worn many hats: web designer, front-end developer, back-end developer, user experience designer, product designer… but one thing remained:
My passion to create and my determination to learn what makes things tick.

During my time as a Senior UI Engineer and Product Designer at a leading Fintech company, which provided personal loans to people in need, I was responsible for redesigning and developing our Mobile Loan Application to address various usability and accessibility concerns and increase customer conversion, loan disbursements, and repayments.
Not only was I the sole designer on this six-month project, I was also the lead front-end engineer, responsible for completely refactoring the application, working closely with Product Directors, Back-End Developers, and QA Engineers to create a best-in-class mobile application for our customers.
As part of my employment at a renowned financial services organization, I was tasked to redesign our retail product after our acquisition of another top firm as well as create a new design system that would be a marriage between the two brands, used by dozens of designers and front-end engineers within multiple product teams.

I was hired as a consultant to create an all-in-one Restaurant Management System that would help restaurants manage online and dine-in orders, reservations, and inventory, freeing restaurant operations personnel to focus less on technical duties and more on growing their business.

I was contracted by a global business-to-business specialty finance company to lead the design of a new data-ingestion product to replace several of their current internal tools. I was responsible for the overall strategy, project management, UX and UI design, and I also created a new design system for their business.
During this six month engagement I worked hand in hand with several of the client’s stakeholders and engineers to craft an end-to-end solution that would help streamline the daily responsibilities and functions of employees throughout their organization.
