What I'm looking for

I am a human-centric designer with a passion for solving problems. I am adaptable and resilient, constantly acquiring new skills at an astounding pace. My expertise lies in creating functional and delightful physical and digital experiences.

At Arrive Logistics, I have been a top contributor, creating over 10 components within a design system that supports 11 designers. This has significantly increased design speed by 30%. I also led the design for a new service that is projected to increase revenue by up to $5 million per year. Additionally, I designed a visibility tool that is expected to save $2-6 million annually in under-recouped expenses. I have also designed data-backed internal tools that have improved operational efficiencies by up to 15%.

During my time at Darwin Homes, I managed and up-leveled a junior designer to a mid-level role in less than a year. I also created a design system that is now used across all company products, improving engineering build speed by 50%. Furthermore, I designed complex platform tools that have reduced manual task generation by over 400 tasks per week.

As a UX Mentor at Avocademy, I have provided 1:1 mentorship for over 100 students on various UX topics. I have reviewed teaching material to identify weaknesses and improve student work quality, resulting in the elimination of common design mistakes among students. At Resi Media, I redesigned the core SaaS product for a new target user group, doubling their revenue potential. I also simplified complex workflows, reducing onboarding and training time by 10%. Additionally, I led a design team of 3 to improve user workflows and overall visual design.

As a Contract UX Designer at Fundify, I created style guides and web templates that significantly reduced build times. I also simplified the SEC's complex crowdfunding forms, improving form completion rates by 12%. Prior to my career in UX design, I owned an escape room business where I accurately documented the product development process, collaborated with clients to create custom experiences, and worked with design and engineering teams to enhance the user experience.
