How I got here.

Just like you, my story is full of excitement, challenges and serendipity.
for work

Before Photoshop, there were #2 pencils and markers

The first thing I ever designed was a Thanksgiving flyer for school in 1988.

It’s uh me, Mario!

In 1992 Mario Paint came out and I started making my first digital artwork.

The life: Graffiti, QuarkXpress, Photoshop, and Programming

In high school I spent my time lettering graffiti and in my junior year my family got its first Macintosh.

West coast To east coast

In college I learned to combine my drawing and computer skills, while studying design and fine art in Los Angeles and New York.

Client-side server

My first design gig was as a freelance web and graphic designer, which is where I learned how to collaborate with clients.

Shrink-wrapping my skills together

In 2004 I joined the startup Home and Living where I wore a few hats—from being a designer to customer service manager.

One World. Every child.

In 2005 I joined a startup non profit called Spirituality for Kids where I brought my many hats to help grow the organization in NYC.

Dub Dub

In 2011 I joined Weight Watchers creative team in NYC to work on making their websites accessible. And in 2014, I transitioned into the role of lead ux designer, focusing on the marketing website.

Challenging the Healthcare Industry

In 2015 I went full-time on my startup Medi.Me. Once again back to wearing a lot of hats but unfortunately this time with little success.

Freedom Over Full-time

In 2016 I decided I didn't want to return to a full-time role and opted to go back to my roots as a freelance designer.
