About

I'm a UI/UX Designer currently living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I love games (casual, mobile, tabletop, MMO, FPS, and many more~), and most recently I've been working at Jam City as a Lead UI/UX Designer in their downtown San Francisco studio.
I love to work with stakeholders (Artists, Game Designers, Producers, Product Managers, Engineers, Executives, User Researchers and QA) to create good user experiences for games. My goal is to work collaboratively and iteratively with my team to provide players with fun, intuitive interactions and engaging features.

My interests are art of all kinds, gaming, Sci-fi/Fantasy books, television and movies, and well-executed plots (cheesy movies are also a vice, no lie.)
