View my Resume

I am a User Experience Designer based in Orange County and also a recent grad from UC Irvine's Master's in Human-Computer Interaction program.

Empathy, design thinking and critical thinking are my strengths. I love a challenge, and my true passion lies in solving problems through design.

I currently lead a team of five bright designers at Ingram Micro in the Global Business Intelligence and Analytics team. Here, I am responsible for providing strategic direction in creating seamless products and experiences from a user-centered design approach. Our products range from mid to large-scale lead-generation marketing programs to various other business tools and B2B applications.

Aside from design, my other passions are videography and photography. In 2015, I co-founded The KeyLight Perspective with my business partner. Today, KeyLight is a micro-nonprofit organization that serves to inspire change through videography and digital storytelling. Over the course of three years, we've partnered with various NPOs including YMCA, Giving Children Hope, Snip Team, and Helpkin to raise awareness on ending child hunger, decreasing animal euthanasia and promoting early prevention of cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, and childhood obesity.
