Professional Bio

I've been fascinated by technology since high school, and I was lucky to graduate with a degree in graphic design and work in the field. I love that I'm always learning and have to stay on my toes technologically and aesthetically, and that I can grow with each project. I've designed the visual language and interfaces for apps that connect parents with their kids at camp, for field workers searching for infrastructure underground, and for biotech companies to engage with the public. I appreciate how React lets you build just about any interface you want. I'm a DJ and love making music whenever I can, as well as reading and getting exercise.

Employment History

FullStack Labs August 2019 - Present

UI / UX Designer

At Fullstack Labs, I'm responsible for gathering and evaluating user requirements and collaborating with product managers and engineers. I'm currently working on:

  • Bunk1, an app that lets parents keep in touch with their kids at camp. My team and I reconfigured the app into something more streamlined and intuitive with smoother transitions and more images, as well as added and improved features to let users get the latest camp news, send and receive camper mail, view and share photos and videos, and get real-time updates. The new interface was designed with Material Design.
  • DropLocker, a cloud-based laundry and dry cleaning delivery service app. My team and I took an existing version of the app to the next level by re-designing a white label user interface using Material Design.

Previously I worked on:

  • The corporate website of Cytek Biosciences, which advances cancer and cell biology research by designing and building compact flow cytometry instruments, which are used by pharmaceutical companies, CRO firms, and cancer research institutions. I used Sketch to refresh the layout of the site and make information more readily accessible.
  • Dash, an internal reporting dashboard that lets clients see hours billed, projects worked on, and other information pertaining to FullStack Labs projects. The app integrates Jira, Toggl, and Slack to produce reports. I designed the UX / UI with Material Design.
BREZLAB November 2016 - August 2019

Creative Director

BREZLAB is a digital marketing agency based in Bogotá, Colombia. As Creative Director, I:

  • Designed the corporate website for Miranda's Health, where teenagers can request sexual health kits shipped directly to their homes. I designed the site using WordPress.
  • Designed an app for Radiodetection, a company specializing in cable and pipe detection. The app was used by their field workers to manage projects and report progress, and connected back to a web manager. It was designed with Sketch and InVision.
  • Helped create an app to manage dynamic spectrum sharing, which allows mobile providers to operate different data standards on the same band at the same time. The UX / UI were designed with Sketch and InVision.
OpenSols Sep 2016 - Aug 2019

Design Director and Senior UI / UX Designer

OpenSols provides business intelligence, big data and analytics, and AWS solutions consulting to companies of all sizes. As Design Director and Senior Designer, I:

  • Designed Datahub, an app that allows users to collect data from multiple sources and organize it for distribution and sharing. I worked on a large team of a dozen other developers and designers and created the app's design with Sketch, HTML, CSS, and InVision.
  • Created the visual language and interface for Sum, a mobile app for customers of Transelca, a Colombian power company. Customers can use the app to report issues and problems related to their electric service. It was designed with Sketch and InVision.
