Career Transition

In the midst of my career in business, I made a life-altering decision to seek a stronger sense of purpose in my professional life. I began the transformation of my career by studying Interaction Design. While attending California College of the Arts in San Francisco, I discovered my passion for uncovering contextual experiences and problems from the perspective of the user, and haven’t looked back since. I have gained a wide variety of experience through my work by utilizing design research, interaction design, systems design, storytelling, visual design, and behavioral study.

Experience

The summer before my last year of design school, I began an internship with IBM where I was tasked with the redesign of one of their multi-platform products. Shortly there afterward, I continued working for them while finishing up my final year at CCA. After graduation, I was hired by IBM as a full-time UX designer within their Cloud, Data, and AI division.

Prior to working as a designer, I studied finance and graduated from San Francisco State University. Upon graduation, I worked as a consultant for the General Services Administration. From there I went onto work in the private sector for a real estate investment firm.
