Summary

I have a broad range of experience creating designs for consumer and enterprise level interfaces. My abilities span multiple platforms, the web, desktop and mobile application design in both iOS and Android platforms.

Objective

I am seeking a position within an organization or design firm in User Experience (UX) and/or Interaction Design (IxD). I would like to work together with software or web design firms, communicating application design principles and strategies for ongoing development.

My aim is to create better interfaces and experiences for the user, making the web, application’s and technology easier for the user. Simplifying communication barriers by bridging the gap between end-users, designers and developers.
