I'm a Design Director UI/UX based in New York City.

I establish styles and implement the vision of the design for games, mobile, web, and design beautiful visual intuitive interface designs. When I'm not designing or being a photoshop ninja, you'll find me in the kitchen cooking and baking delicious food to feed your soul.
