My Background

How did I get into UX?

  •  I am a naturally curious designer and analytical creative problem-solver who desires to humanize technology for the user.   

  • These characteristics align with the qualities that are needed to be a great UX designer, and it became clear that my life direction was to become a UX/UI designer.

  • For more information on my journey, here is an article published by the Columbia University UXUI certification course.

  • Check out the interview that my high school did about me in regards to my UX design journey

Google Finance & Autos

  • Designed Google Finance Bubbles by conducting background user research and usability tests across the organization in building an MVP

  • Iterated on various sketches and prototypes to allow for various states such as pinning, collapsing, and expanding bubbles for stock tickers

  • Created low-fidelity and high-fidelity wireframes for the product feature through Figma used by front-end engineers to implement changes

  • Implemented Dark mode by translating color guidelines to meet accessibility standards

  • Liaised with engineering to compare demos with my designs and discuss any additional states needed for product launch

  • Coordinated biweekly syncs with engineers and product managers through the development cycle

My Strengths

  • ambition, dedication, curiosity, and hustle.

  • Despite not having any previous design experience, I was able to graduate as the salutatorian of my UX/UI Certification course at Columbia University.

  • I also got accepted into the first cohort for the UX Design apprenticeship at Google.  I was able to successfully adapt into the work culture at Google while learning both about Finance and UX at the same time.

My Hobbies

Bachata Dancing

On my free time, I love to dance Bachata. Bachata is a social dance that originated from the Dominican Republic; my parents are from the Dominican Republic and I grew up in Washington Heights so I grew up dancing bachata. I am a proud Dominican American and dancing bachata is my creative outlet and a way to connect to my cultural roots.
