Resume

Introduction

A designer, focused on branding, product design & user experience. I view myself as both an honest and friendly individual. I love what I do and working on a team.

I’ve been Design Lead at Nutshell for the last 4 years – primarily working on our Web, Mac, iPhone and Android apps, as well as contributing to branding, marketing and website efforts. I’ve worked remotely but I’m currently working from Nutshell’s main office in Ann Arbor on a H1B Visa.

Remember to smile each and everyday 😊.
