Nice to meet you.

A bit about my journey.

Hi, I'm Jonathan. For the past decade, I've been fortunate enough to work as a design leader, focusing on creating interactive user experiences, design systems, and branding. My ultimate goal is to make products that not only look great but are also easy to use and accessible to everyone.

Aside from designing, I really enjoy mentoring others and teaching UX courses on the side. Being able to help others grow in this field is incredibly fulfilling.Originally from Bogota, Colombia, I grew up soaking up the South Florida sunshine and have also spent some time in California, where I fell in love with the West Coast and became a proud parent.

When I'm not working, you can usually find me jamming out on my electric bass, hitting the gym, or exploring the great outdoors with my family. I'd love to connect with you, whether it's to chat about design or just to say hi!
