Hello Again

I’m a multi-disciplinary designer specializing in building digital products with over 10 years of professional experience.

I currently work for Mailchimp as a Product Designer on the Audience Domain team, where I build tools with my cross-functional teammates that help our customers understand who their audience is so they can more effectively market to those people.

I’m also the owner of Horchata Club, a side business of mine where I offer design services and consultation to startups, agencies, and large orgs. I’m currently in the process of narrowing the focus to building products that enable growth and improved worfklows for musicians.

When I’m not working on design things, I’m in my home studio making music as Navigateur or When Tides Collide, or recording and mixing records for my friends.
