Hi, I’m Michael! I’m a Product Designer that is passionate, driven and obsessed with design in all its many forms. It is my goal to elevate design and change how the world approaches problem solving. Empathy is at the center of my design philosophy.
I have been a product designer now for three years. I have experience in delivering entire user experiences from the research phase, all the way to high fidelity mockups, prototypes and developer support. My philosophy is driven by user empathy and to never stop iterating and making the product better.
I became a designer to collaborate and help create experiences that make the complex, simple. My journey to design started when I was young, I always love building crafty solutions to things that I believed shouldn’t be as complicated. Prior to design, I was a music teacher, I spent my days molding young minds and mentoring them to think about music more expressively and passionately. I strive to always build experiences that will make an impact in every user’s life.
If I’m not cranking out paper prototypes for testing or building intricate task flows, I am often playing my cello or climbing the leaderboards in video games. Recently I have been very interested in expanding my visual design skills and have been caught up in a 100-day vector challenge.
