Currently Open For New Projects/Role
I am currently looking for work and am open to both full time and contract roles, preferably remote-first. Location doesn’t matter as I am willing to move if my timezone doesn’t permit me to stay in/near U.S. West Coast time. Please refer to my LinkedIN Profile for any specific job information.
I was hired on at Meta again on the instagram team for a special assignment focused on Content Liquidity. It was an initiative to help standardize the process of posting content that flows between Instagram and Facebook specifically. The goal was to help fix a recent problem that users were running into when posting from one app to the other under the Meta umbrella.

Desert Schools Federal Credit Union
In an effort to stay relevant in the ever changing financial and banking space DSFC saw it important to tighten up their UX strategy and clean up the design of their Online Application experience in order to appeal to a wider range users. They asked me to help them not only build a strategy in doing that but lead in the design efforts with design that would incorporate a more modern look and less obstructed user-flow through the initial sign-up process.

Meta (formerly Facebook)
Working for Facebook was a treat as I was able to work on products that were being used by millions of people all over the world. I mostly worked with the Marketplace team but dabbled in some of the ad space as well as some crossover e-commerce solutions between marketplace and instagram. my main focus was to focus on the growth design of the seller and buyer experience when it came to listing items, communicating with potential buyers and eventually taking that item through a safe and secure transaction process.
