A goal without a plan is just a wish.

ABOUT
RESUME .PDF

Hi, I’m Gigi. As a UX designer I’m all about the details that go into making a great idea an actual reality.

My previous experience as an art & English teacher in Japan, a travel agent in the fast fashion industry, and graphic designer at a comic book publisher have taught me the empathy, planning skills, and aesthetic abilities necessary as a UX designer.

I’m here to do the dirty work of user research, ideation, prototyping, and thoughtful UI design so the end result looks beautifully (and effortlessly) packaged.
