I have worked as a Designer for over 5 years. I have 2 years experience working in Miami as a Graphic Designer and 3.5 years working abroad as a Digital Designer. I enjoy UI Design, UX interactions, and Web Design. I am in search for more opportunities as a UI Designer.
I enjoy front end development and design. Currently I am learning a bit more of REACT. I also have a passion for mobile applications. Seeing as we use them everyday. I feel it’s an ideal way to reach a large amount of people. I have developed applications for iOS using Swift, for personal use. I’m in my last semester at University of California – Irvine, taking they Mobile Application Development Certification.
I have a passion for all things tech. I enjoy designing, developing, and tinkering. IoT and anything I can really get my hands on and take apart… and desperately try and put back together.
This topic speaks for itself. Even though it’s not exactly a service, I have been told I make a good drinking buddy. After a long day there is nothing like relaxing with some fine spirits from across the pond.
