Hey there!

I'm JT, thanks for checking out my work

I hail from Venice Beach, California. I've had 7+ years of experience as a Product Designer in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Career

I shipped UX at Tradecraft with Kate Rutter  and Laura Klein (author of Lean UX.)

From there, I went on to work as a Product Designer at Kissmetrics, Crazy Egg, and Hello Bar.

With 7+ years of experience, I am now designing the next generation of Twilio products.

Projects include:

  • Authy iOS & Authy Android
  • Messaging Insights: analytics data to the customers ranging from a single developer to enterprises such as Lyft, Airbnb, Uber, and Nike

I also contribute to Twilio’s design system.

I am in love with product design. I'm in love with the magic of it. The pace. The excitement. The creativity.

This website is a way for me to express myself with what I love most: design.

Education

I went to UC Berkeley from 2007 to 2011. There, I was the first person to graduate from both the College of Environmental Design and the Haas School of Business. I received 2 degrees and a minor:

  • Bachelor of Arts - Architecture - College of Environmental Design
  • Bachelor of Science - Business Administration - Haas School of Business
  • Minor in City Regional Planning

Life

When I'm not designing, my love for adventure inspires me to travel. I've backpacked 22-miles in Big Sur.

I’m passionate about meeting new people from other cultures — I’ve traveled to 15+ countries: Taiwan, Indonesia, France, Mexico, Japan, Columbia, Ireland, UK, Iceland, Sweden, Spain, New Zealand, Denmark, Singapore, and Thailand.

I love photography, swimming, biking, camping and learning languages. I can speak, read and write Mandarin.

Random fun fact about me: “Into the Wild” is one of my favorite books. Here’s a photo of me tapping into my love of hiking, and river crossing. =]
