I'm Ryan.

Thank you for taking the 

time out of your day to

get to know me!

Hello,

I'M A UX/UI DESIGNER

I offer 5 years of experience working full-time with a startup company, ASRV, as a creative professional. Over the years, my passion for creating innovative solutions has grown to be more efficient through my initiative to learn and implement design thinking and lean UX practices into the business. I believe that any collaboration enhances brand cohesion, workplace morale, and produces unique solutions that one could never achieve on their own. I take pride in the attention to detail I bring to every part of a project while staying within time constraints to meet deadlines. My mission throughout life is to leverage my empathetic and creative abilities to help people. I'm currently available for full-time work.

MY PAST LIFE

Working at ASRV, I've had to wear many creative hats. I’ve contributed to many iterations of the company's products, through this experience I have come to notice areas where efficiency could be increased. I witnessed the company grow its number of employees by 500%, which made it harder for everyone in the company to work towards a common goal without implementing a new structure that embraces the growth of a company. I chose to pursue product design when I realized the kinds of problems I was trying to solve were UX problems.

It became clear that the incorporation of design thinking with facilitated brainstorm sessions were needed to improve all the company's products in the same direction. These practices result in faster iteration cycles, using our number of different views as a strength, and ensures that all products of every department are gauged towards solving the same problem statement. These processes also help make faster changes to our problem statement to better fit the user's needs.

"Ryan is an extremely devoted and passionate individual. When it came to working on projects and collections together, it was a seamless process. He understands exactly what’s needed to be done and can deliver without straying far from the initial concept. We always pushed each other to get better while staying positive and confident throughout the whole process. I like that we always kept each other accountable, consistently delivering the best we can create, and crafting the most comfortable work environment to foster the best results. If you want to work with somebody who pays the most critical attention to detail, understands the culture, and creates overall beneficial energy, Ryan is your guy."

CAREER FOUNDRY

I acquired a UI Design certificate from CareerFoundry in JULY ‘20. Which includes over 500 hours of intensive training with industry-leading mentors and tutors. I knew that completing such a course would be essential for me to attain a solid foundation for my career.

DE ANZA COLLEGE

I have acquired an Associate of Arts Degree in Liberal Arts from De Anza College on Sept. '19. (Relevant Coursework: General Psychology, Public Speaking, Social Problems, and ELEM Stats/Probability)

All three were completed through online classes while I worked a full-time job. I recognize that my ability to complete programs and learn online has always been my strong point. Most people are unmotivated at home and distracted. I thrive because of my ability to zone in on what I want to accomplish, driven by my desire for constant growth. I am confident that I would be an exceptional candidate for any full-time remote UX/UI jobs during this pandemic. I am hopeful of finding a new team that I believe in and can mutually grow with.

MY CURRENT PROCESS

DESIGN THINKING

A cognitive, strategic and practical process by which concepts are developed. The ability to perform the process in a non-linear fashion enables quick iteration.

The logo represents what it is like to work with me. The infinite twisting path is symbolic of the iterative design process. There are twists and turns with each iteration that defines innovation. The twisting path revolves around the shape of a water drop. The water drop represents my intentions when I join a new team. Water is essential for all things to thrive. I intend to have the same effect on my team and our users.

LAST WORDS

MY VIEW ON UX/UI

I believe that the UX/UI community as a whole is what is driving the world to be more efficient. Our purpose is to make anything complex appear simple and intuitive for the user.  I’ve stated earlier that my mission throughout life is to leverage my empathetic and creative abilities to help people. I intend on not only helping users but also any team that I join. Making people's lives easier instead of harder is a demonstration of love between humanity. To me, it is a no brainer to fully dedicate my life's contribution to UX/UI.
