I'm passionate about making things that really matter.
I started this journey as a software engineer, but soon learned I was more interested with solving usability and human problems, rather than technical and scalibility problems. As such, I find myself focusing on design and management, although I try to avoid specific titles which don't represent the realities of cross-functinal product development.
The UX designer in me loves creating functional, beautiful, and novel interfaces that solve real problems. Often this expands to crafting entire products, and I utililize my engineering background to connect the unexpected and create genuinely innovative solutions.
The PM in me thrives in cross-functional teams and loves building bridges between teammates of different disciplines to move products forward. I thread UX principles in all my work, and try to always have empathy for both the user and my fellow teammates.
My design and dev tools of choice tend to be Swift, Sketch, InVision, and Zepplin, but I'm always open to learning something new. Currently experimenting with Figma, FramerX, Keynote, and InVision Studio. And of course I'm familiar with source control tools, in particular GitHub and Bitbucket.
As for PM tools I'm most familiar with Slack, Asana, and JIRA, but I've experimented with dozens of them.
In addition, I'm quite comfortable giving presentations and love to share what the team has been working on to keep others updated and inspired. I've done this for BMW C-suite executives visiting the office as part of my role working there.
