*newzcard: World's First Visual News Source
Position: Creative Director of Technology & Senior UI/UX/Visual Designer.
This one holds dear to my heart. For a little over a year I had the pleasure of working alongside a very passionate, innovative and experienced team of entrepreneurs. Working alongside the founders and executives, I had the exciting task and responsibility to: take their visions, design the products, assist with growing the business and brand, managing the initial development teams, consulting on strategy, assisting with hiring, user testing and quality assurance to name a few. As with every project you take away something special.. I'll never forget how proud I felt to watch my executive team present our products to the President of the United States live on whitehouse.org/live.
