Leo met all the craft expectations and demonstrated great maturity during a very sensitive project, [...] he challenged the given business requirements to ensure we include the human-centered lenses to our solutions
Leo was a catalyst for team-wide ideation sessions, which he initiated many times. [...] He is absolutely ready to shift his focus towards experience design, and move slightly away from visual design
Leo's ability to ramp up on a very niche, technical business as MPAC’s was done with such ease, that it seemed as if he was a long-time member of the team within the first few weeks! He facilitated UX sessions, employing synchronous and asynchronous techniques to uncover the mindset of our diverse user group community. He took very complex tasks and turned them on their side, so that our user groups could navigate our systems with ease and confidence!
If there's one thing to remember about me is that I spend most of my time designing & building solutions to problems I personally experience. I have a penchant for digital products, but I'm also increasingly interested in physical spaces. Whatever it is, I take a holistic approach to solving problems, getting involved at all phases of development.
As I grow, I notice how much of my work lacks process, and goes undocumented. I aspire to measure the quality of product design through defined and relevant metrics that can and should be compared across sprints and audiences. I'm interested in learning more about product thinking, growth design and user testing.
In my experience, the best projects are ones where the people involved come from different perspectives, work closely together, and grow as a result of it. I strive across all my projects to create the best team, and culture.
