"Hi. I'm Omar, a User Experience Designer based in Los Angeles, California."

Having worked on various agile projects for companies ranging from start-ups to global corporations, I enjoy the iterative process as well as working with project teams that utilize proven frameworks, user-centered design principles, and methodologies to create the best digital product solutions possible.

About Me

Driven

Naturally self-motivated and organized, my ultimate goal is to 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 six years of experience as a UX Designer, and 25 years of overall experience in the Digital Creative Industry. Possessing a strong sense of personal integrity and drive, I like to help others realize their potential with finding solutions to their human challenges when needed.

Creative

In my spare time, I like to paint, learn to play acoustic guitar, be in nature, write rhymes and poetry, lightly explore metaphysics and quantum physics, and learn about Intelligent Technology. I earned my first freelance gig at age 14 designing a logo for a professional catering company. That's when I knew I wanted a career as a Creative. I'm also the proud Dad of an awesome 11-year old girl named Harlem, named after the New York City borough where I, and my mother, were born.
