I am a self-taught junior UI/UX designer always striving to create beautiful, useful products. In my spare time, I write, watch films, and stay fly and well read like a cardinal.
Netflix Feature Concept: Shuffle
Research has shown that Netflix users spend as much as 19 minutes a day, over 300 days in a lifetime, looking for shows to watch. What if, instead of spending hours browsing, you could just hit a button and start watching. Like the shuffle function on your music playlist, Netflix shuffle allows you to simply choose a playlist (curated based on your interests), and hit play. If you don't like something, just hit next.

Mana: Social podcast app concept
Aside from music, podcasts are my go to medium while doing my design work. I use the iTunes podcast app to consume them, as do 89% of podcast listeners. However the app leaves a lot to be desired: discovering new content (per episode, not show) is hard, sharing to other social media platforms doesn't quite work seen as podcasts aren't best served in the visual context of apps like Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. Furthermore the iTunes app is a black box for podcasters as they are unable to connect with listeners or get actionable insight on how their content is consumed. Introducing Mana: a community connecting podcasters and listeners.
Wikipedia Mobile Concept
As ubiquitous and popular as Wikipedia is, it still provides its readers a cluttered mobile reading experience compared to other sites like Medium. The purpose of this redesign is to make the reading experience clearer. Notice the simple navigation, beautiful presentation, and readable typography.
Web design: TSP website redesign
I was tasked by the Huge design agency in Brooklyn to redesign the Thrift Savings Plan's website. The TSP is a savings program similar to the 401 K but for military members. However 60% of military personnel have yet to enroll. The task was to redesign the site in order to increase enrollment and improve the sign up process. Emphasis was put on conveying information about the TSP accessibly and elegantly while enabling quick navigation of the site. Notice the prominent Call to Action with the enroll button on each page.
