Design, Scrum and Photography Portfolio

 

This very moment, a butterfly flutters it's wings, a whale breaches out of the ocean and a star in the farthest reaches of our galaxy goes into supernova. This is a very special moment!

 

Thank you for being here at the same time.

UX DESIGNER

 
 

Delivering a great experience is not rocket science! It can almost always be over-simplified for its end goal. However, to truly understand it at an anthropological level, it can become insanely complicated.

This is why the entire UX process; as a whole; can have a significant impact on the quality of an evolving product or service. And it is also why many companies continue to invest in UX in order to stay ahead and succeed.

What's most intriguing to me; is that there's always something to learn, whether it is from research, usability testing, data analysis or simply over a casual and honest conversation...

ScrumMaster

 

Scrum is an iterative and incremental Agile methodology for managing complex projects. The foundation of Scrum is empirical, which is to say that any knowledge gained, comes from experience and therefore, decisions are made based on what is learned from each team and its unique projects.

 

Studies suggest that 71% of organizations use Agile methods and have found that they are 28% more successful than traditional projects.

How can Designers benefit from having these skills? The possibilities are endless but one of the biggest value I've seen in my personal experience is with the organization's growth on Renato Feijó's UX Maturity scale.

PHOTOGRAPHER

 

When I'm not at my desk working on research and design, I'm often out to places, looking for the next rare opportunity to photograph nature's marvel. My passion for photography has taken me to some of the most surreal places on our planet. And I've been very blessed with feature recognition on National Geographic.

Background

 

Before naturalizing in the US, I've lived for long periods in different countries including Australia, Malaysia and Bangladesh. The opportunity to live amongst diverse cultures around the world nurtured my mindset and build empathy with all the wonderful people I've met over the years.

I have a Master's degree in Human Computer Interaction (HCI), a Bachelor's degree on Industrial Design and a Diploma in Photography as well.

 

I love to go hiking, playing guitars and spending quality times with my kiddo.
