I'm Andrea, a Visual UX Designer in San Diego, CA.

I use my love of aesthetics, form and function to create smart, beautiful design.

See my work


My background includes formal training with a Degree in Fine Art, ongoing training in UX design, and over 15 years experience working as a creative lead within diverse, multi-talented teams all over the US and world. I've worked in software development, video games and on large-scale web sites with a special focus on designing marketing assets for globally recognized brands.


My love for aesthetic design as well as form and function has led me to training in UI/UX design.


I believe the basic elements of great design include research, collaboration, concept, structure, and the ability to create iterate deliverables. It's important to be able to adapt fluidly, evolving each design to reach it's highest potential.
