Born in the Philippines and moved to Canada during my teenage years. Living in Toronto for the last twelve years now.

As a growing designer, I am interested in helping build digital products and experiences that enrich a person's life thoughtfully and with kindness at its core.

EXPERIENCE

Previously the founding product designer at Skilltype, where I was helping library organizations and professionals adapt to future challenges and paradigm shifts, empowering them to keep serving their communities exceptionally.

As their only designer, I helped them grow from a handful of B2B customers into securing their first statewide deal in the U.S. and eventually bringing in 150+ library organizations worldwide– playing a key role in their journey from being a bootstrapped company to a successful seed round.
