I'm a product designer living in Manhattan, that loves soccer, music, and dumplings!
For 10+ years, I’ve worked for startups and companies like Apple, Invision, and Forex. My work has been featured in FastCo, and I’m responsible for the concept and design work of a New York Times-featured restaurant. I’m currently open to new opportunities.
As a product designer I’ve worn multiple hats, and have taking charge of wireframes, prototypes, visual assets, and much more. I strongly believe that research combined with an immersive iterative process that empathetically balances the user’s needs and business goals always produces the best results in design.
I’ve worked across multiple industries, and collaborated with both fortune 500 companies and start-ups a-like. I also have strong love for branding, and have always admired the works of designers such as David Airey.
Below are some of my favorite design reads that have helped me produce the best results thru-out the years.
"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." - Mahatma Gandhi
I was born in beautiful Cuenca, Ecuador from an Ecuadorian father and an American mother. Having grown up in both South America and in the US, has given me a diverse perspective that allows me to adapt quickly to new environments given the nature of my multicultural upbringings.
I graduated from Universidad San Francisco de Quito, with a Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Design, and a minor in Music.
In my free time you can typically find me playing pick up soccer on the upper west side of Manhattan, or sipping lattes at Birch coffee.
I’m a huge foodie, and I have always had a thing particularly for dumplings. So much so, that in 2017 I decided to open up my own dumpling joint, which continue to operate and grow autonomously, and has been featured in prominent media outlets such as The New York Times, Time Out, and CBS news.
As a musician, and I love writing songs both in English and Spanish, whenever I get some free time. My favorite instruments are the guitar, and drums.
