For the past 4 years, I’ve been consulting at Apple, Inc. designing visually stunning and functionally excellent user interfaces for big data reporting. This includes designing interaction and visual design for complex report generating apps for desktop, iPad, and iPhone, report retrieval apps, data visualization tools, dashboards, data manipulation tools, source creation tools, documentation websites, style guides, icons, logos, and advising other teams on the same. After extensive research of what the users expect, I come up with a long-term design and many short-term designs using Omnigraffle, Keynote, or prototype movies that show interactions using Adobe XD. I create final art assets in Illustrator, Photoshop, and Premier.
My responsibilities at Apple include influencing key strategy and execution decisions on the functionality of web apps by collaborating with Product Management, Web Development, Marketing, and Engineering. My ability to guide stakeholders towards a human-centered experience resulted in the creation of iTunes Connect Sales and Trends. If you sell an app via iTunes, the app you use to track your sales on iTunes Connect was designed by me.
My responsibilities at other companies have been along the same lines. While working for California State University, I spent 8 years developing my skills in HTML, CSS, and User Centered Design. I worked within the brand set forth by the webmaster, but also composed new designs to create more custom layouts and functionality.
I like Old Fashioneds (cocktail), Game of Thrones, casual gaming on PS4, gardening, good food, architecture, nature, hiking, cycling, and craft beer.
