My Design Philosophy

My aim ultimately is to:
Design the right things, right.

To empower a high performance design culture requires participating in learning about users and their problems and valuing high quality designs.


Collaboration and community, not competition and comparison.

My Experience: I am the creator of the Long Beach UX Meetup. We meet once a month to support and learn from each other.

The user is the expert and we're serving them.

My Experience: I have self-published a book to help designers chart out their careers and get back to focusing on service.

Read My Book

The real master is always a student.

I believe there is always more to learn. I have taught UX classes and graduated over 100+ UX students at General Assembly - and have found I am still learning more.

The soft skills are just as important as the hard skills.

My Experience: I have a passion for the soft skills in design and conducted over 14 workshops at various places like UCLA, Cal Arts, Lucky Brand, and more.
