Hi I'm Russell! 

Iā€™m a Bay Area native with a background in UX/UI design, photography and video. I attended San Jose State University where I studied fine art and graphic design. After getting my BA, I was going to get my credentials for teaching, but then I started my career working as a digital marketing specialist /production artist. Then I transitioned into product design focusing on UX/UI for digital products. With a small business/start-up background, I helped manage a small company by handling customer success/support, digital marketing, content creation, research and design. By 2018, I helped launched two products.

Aside from my personal career, I also freelance as a photographer and videographer. I take on weddings, elopements, portraits and personal projects. On my free time, Iā€™m interested in meeting people, learning other cultures, reading books or traveling to my next destination.
