👨🏼‍🎨 I design to solve human problems

I'm a UX Designer and Researcher from Manila and I obsess about design problems and design systems. I'm currently the Head of Design at Growsari. I also previously led design teams at Kalibrr (YC 13) and Mobile app design at OLX Philippines. Beyond my day job I also speak at local tech events about human rights, public health and bike commuting.
