About Me

A common thread in my life and work has been understanding and helping people

Designer and Educator


I've worked as a freelance and contract designer with clients including Ecommerce, EdTech, Healthcare, Finance, Nonprofit, Agency, and HVAC. In these projects, I've worn many hats, and have executed web and software projects from ideation to execution and delivery. It's been a privilege to do this work, and I look forward to my next opportunity, perhaps working with your team!

For more work examples, I've proudly built the following websites: Echolux Creative, Berkeley Music Instrument Exchange, Living Arts Playback Theatre Ensemble, and Juan Balikbayan.

Prior to that, I worked in a fast-paced digital media college as an instructor and lecturer. During this time, I taught audio editing, sound design, video production, and multimedia assembly. I still teach private lessons and perform locally from time to time.

My commitment to excellence in my design career means bringing value to others, because I am genuinely curious to know how best I can be of assistance.
