I have over fifteen years of experience in leading design teams, creating web & print design, as well as art direction, UI/UX, and prototyping. I also hold two Master’s degrees — both with honors – one in Marketing Communication, the other in Business Administration with a Finance concentration. I also hold a Bachelor’s in Graphic Design. With a variety of skills and these degrees under my belt, I can look at a problem holistically — from design, user experience, marketing, and business.
My passion is to help solving design and user experience problems. I love to collaborate and work with other awesome people who also think "good enough" is not an acceptable answer.
I'm blessed with many awards and recognitions from many institutions for my work. They range from Best of Show from CASE V and an Award for Best Practices in Communication and Marketing, a competition that included more than 2,000 entries. I have two back-to-back Gold Awards from Publicity Club of Chicago; four Gold and Silver awards from Marketing Report; and five gold, silver, and bronze awards from Service Industry Association Awards. There are a few more I don't remember (seriously, you can easily lose track after getting a few).
