Hi! I'm Maria
I’m a Product Designer based in Denver, CO. I have a passion for creating user experiences that are seamless, impactful, and inclusive.
In my past life, I worked as a graphic designer designing templates, campaigns, and resources for small business owners. This time in my career opened my eyes to how frustrating and defeating unclear, poorly-designed interfaces could be to productivity and efficiency. I often found myself stepping outside my daily tasks to talk to business owners on the phone or in our global intranet forums, re-working the designs, and coaching them on best practices and processes to fill the gaps I was seeing.
My interest in design has always been fueled by a desire to find simpler and more delightful ways to communicate with people in the ever-changing world of technology. By shifting my focus to user-centric design practices, I am able to do this in new, more meaningful ways.
I firmly believe that technology can play a positive role in defining the future of the world we live in and how we interact with it. In order to build products that are useful and improve human lives and processes, we need to deeply understand the human experience. I want to use my skills to empower people to accomplish their goals and that is why I create digital experiences that make life easier.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, playing with my two doodles, baking, and starting too many books at one time that I (hopefully) will finish.
