Hey there! My name is Elly and I'm a creative thinker living in beautiful Miami, FL. I have a strong background in visual/graphic design, and am now pursuing a career shift into user experience design. I'm currently enrolled in IronHack Miami and am slated to complete their UX/UI course this coming November.

Prior to moving back to Miami, I had a long stint in Sillicon Valley, where I was able to work with a wide range of tech companies as an in-house communications designer, dabble in UI/UX design, and even debut as a design instructor for a short period with the Berkeley Art Studio. My 8+ years of broad experience with companies like MTV Networks, Telemundo, Liftopia, Thoughtworks Studios, Oracle, Comfy, and Wear Your Voice Magazine has primed me to have a deep understanding of where the needs of  marketing, business, and design intersect.

If you think I may be a good fit for a role, please reach out. I'm currently interested in full-time/freelance UX/UI opportunities or roles that allow me to approach design from a big picture standpoint (creative direction, art direction, strategy). I'm less interesting in marketing design and branding opportunities at the moment, but if you are an individual with a small need (logo, illustration work, graphics) I am open to enquiries!
