When I'm not designing, I'm behind the wheels of steel

As a creative professional with a diverse range of skills and interests, I'm passionate about bringing the human touch to everything I do. From tattooing to DJing in Tokyo, studying figure drawing and anatomy, to designing highly sophisticated products, my experiences span across various fields.

I am a dedicated design leader with a strong background in crafting refined digital experiences. Based in New York City, I take pride in guiding and mentoring cross-functional teams, as demonstrated through my work at Protenus and Compass. With over 15 years in product design leadership and a BFA in Interactive Media from the Maryland Institute College of Art, I have had the opportunity to contribute to innovative web and mobile solutions for startups and established organizations.

My diverse skill set, developed over years of experience, has allowed me to create distinctive digital experiences. My knowledge in Agile Process, Brand Design, and Customer-centric Design has been essential to my achievements as a design leader. Moreover, my expertise in Design Operations, Design Systems, and Frontend Development enables me to effectively guide cross-functional teams in delivering multiple SaaS products. I am honored to have received Webby and national ADDY awards, which reflect my commitment to excellence and creative vision.

In addition to my design expertise, I have a strong background in fine arts, focusing on figure drawing and painting over the last five years. I've dedicated two years to studying at The Art Students League of New York, where I earned a fine arts certification. Outside the realm of visual arts, I also have a passion for music and have embraced my role as a DJ, specializing in Jungle and Footwork. I've had the pleasure of performing at various venues across the East Coast and even in Japan.

On a personal note, I enjoy immersing myself in the world of Dungeons & Dragons. For the past year, I have been running a campaign with my former colleagues from Protenus. We continue to strengthen our bond and teamwork as we regularly meet over Zoom to embark on exciting adventures together.
