Where I'm From
I was born in the port city of Guaymas, Sonora in northern Mexico, known for its beautiful beaches
and fresh seafood.
From age 4 to 25 I lived in Phoenix, AZ, known for its dry heat, dust storms, and desert life.
I now live in beautiful San Jose, CA and work in the heart of Silicon Valley.
In my free time, I like to...
Listen to podcasts and public radio programs
Play video games
Learn new and interesting things from the internet
My personal philosophy centers around...
Continual improvement of myself and of my design process
Advocacy of human rights, equality, and social justice
Scientific understanding and advancement
Why I Love Design
Design makes us human. The very process of identifying a problem and taking steps to fix it is what has allowed societies to form, communities to grow, and our quality of life to drastically improve. Give us enough time and an appropriate design process and we can accomplish just about anything. Good design solves problems, but great design also makes things worth owning, worth letting into our lives, worth connecting with emotionally.
I see my role as a designer as one of immense responsibility, potential, and virtue.
It is my job to do well. It is my duty to do good. Let's change the world together!
