About

Hey!


My name is Matthew, but most people call me Matt. I was born and raised in the Philippines, spent my high school years in Orlando, then my college years in the Metro Detroit area.


Meeting people from different cultures while I was growing up intrigued me, which triggered my desire to understand how they think in order to find the most effective way of communicating with them. I now use that passion as a UX/UI Designer to create intuitive and elegant experiences that addresses and solves user needs.


My career started after I graduated from the University of Michigan-Dearborn. I started out as a Marketing Intern, but I was enamored by technology and design. That, paired with my enthusiasm to learn, inspired me to delve into the field of UX/UI by taking a plethora of classes on Udemy and Coursera, watching countless Youtube videos, and enrolling myself in CareerFoundry’s 6 month online immserive UX program.


When I am not in front of my computer, you can find me in a hole in a wall restaurant, at a gym (probably regretting that hole in a wall restaurant), or reading my wonderfully nerdy Sci-Fi novels.


Profile

I strive to create intuitive and elegant experiences, inspired by my passion for design and understanding and addressing user needs. I am also an avid learner, constantly challenging myself to grow and learn new skills in usability and interface design.
