I'm a product designer with a focus on creating systems and design documentation for teams. Originally I went to school for Design at UC Davis, and I started out in video game interface. Eventually I wanted to have a bigger positive impact on the world and that has brought me to Lendtable.
I'm from San Jose, just a little south of San Francisco.
I spent some time helping create the product and brand for Doppler (a developer tool everyone should be using, and one we do use here at Lendtable).
I love the mission and can see very clearly what an impact it can make because, frankly, it's a product that I wish I had when I was at a company that offered 401k matching (which I didn't utilize).
My mom's side of the family always seemed to struggle financially, and most of them don't even see a possibility of retirement in their future. That feels so unjust since they truly work harder than anyone else I know. They simply lack the knowledge that someone like my step-dad has about how to handle money and invest.
I love art and I study everything from fashion illustration to comics and animation. I am an absolute scifi nerd, and love video games, books, and tv that explores the possibilities of future technologies.
My step-dad has always been my go-to guy for financial advice. Hoping to branch out more in the coming months as I dig into the finance world for myself.
My biggest investment so far has been in my education, and I'm very proud of that decision. I've paid off over $60,000 worth of debt from that time, and can boast a nice healthy credit score for it. That accomplishment has made me feel confident in being able to dig myself out of any financial hole I might find myself in, and it also led to me having frugal and realistic money habits that are a huge asset in my life today.
Honestly, be kinder to your family. I wish I had known how much they were struggling and how difficult it can be to live with a seriously unstable financial situation. I can see now that they were all doing their best and that financial stress can affect every aspect of one's life. I don't wish that on anyone.
Winter! I love peacoat weather.
Having to enter credit card info to get a free trial. :(

Just glad to join the team and I'm ready to help create a product that changes lives.
