As a UX/UI designer, I have been successfully creating the end-to-end user experience strategy and user interface design to enable more effective communication between client project guidelines and the end-user. Throughout my professional career, I have been responsible for creating and instituting user-centered design solutions for B2B technology companies and customer-facing web and native mobile applications.

Through this process, I have regularly engaged with customers and business stakeholders through interviews and usability testing, creating multiple design selections and collecting feedback to quickly turn around new design options. I have also worked directly with developers and scrum masters through concepts of scrum and agile management methodologies to ensure the successful implementation of the UI design, creating engaging user experience, and user-friendly designs for industries such as database hardware and software, computer network, energy, healthcare, retail, transit, and banking, bringing to each project the highest level of user experience design, visual communication and innovation.
