"Hello. I'm Omar, a UX Architect and Visual Artist based in Los Angeles, California."

As a UX Architect, I've worked on various agile projects for companies ranging from start-ups to global corporations. I enjoy the iterative process and working with project teams that use proven frameworks, human-centered design principles, and methodologies to create the best digital product solutions possible.

As a Visual Artist, I've exhibited my artwork over the past 15+ years in Amsterdam, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, and Washington, D.C, and have designed and/or illustrated on a number of promotional and publication projects.

About Me

Driven

Naturally self-motivated and organized, my ultimate goal is to help create digital products that serve what's best for humanity. I believe in human growth. As a strategic and empathic leader, I can see the potential in others, nurture their creativity, and champion their abilities to organize change. As a team member, I'm quick to spot inefficiency and appreciate engaging with others to conceptualize and create new solutions. I do well in developing reasonable and pragmatic plans to accomplish a successful product vision.

Experienced

A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and former expatriate in The Netherlands for 9 years, I have over eight years of experience in Human-Computer Interaction, and 25 years of overall experience in the Digital Creative Industry. Possessing a strong sense of personal integrity and drive, I have a wide range of life experiences that contribute to my passion and longevity in my career.

Creative

In my spare time, I like to paint, learn to play acoustic guitar, be in nature, write rhymes and poetry, read, and learn about Intelligent Technology. I earned my first freelance gig at age 14 designing a logo for a professional catering company in Philadelphia. That's when I knew I wanted a career as a Creative. I'm also the proud dad of an awesome 12-year old girl named Harlem, named after the New York City borough where I, and my mother, were born.
