Selected Cases

Fordham GSB Social Innovation Collaboratory TECH team app:

As a student product manager, I led an app development team of four with the goal of designing an app to increase inter-team communication and sustainability initiatives on campus.

Jobs in a Sandbox - Mock Design Sprint

Led team of four through mock design sprint created by PM's from IBM and Google. Guided the team from concept to feature mockup design.

Doorkee - RentAlpaca Product Assessment:

As a part of due diligence for a possible acquisition, I assessed RentAlpaca's Facebook Messenger Chatbot's general usability and overall value for the end user.

Selected designs

Above are a sample of a few of the designs I have created over the few months. I picked up graphic design at the start of the year and have found it to be a great outlet as well as a benefit to my product design sense.

Feedback is welcome. I am always looking to improve and grow."If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid" - Epictetus
