My passion for sharing information carried me from a journalism background to UX/UI design. 

Hi, my name is Sean, I am a user experience designer and currently working as a visual designer with IBM. I graduated in May 2014 from the Masters of Graphic Design program at North Carolina State University. My undergraduate studies include Post-Bacc graphic design program at Maryland Institute of Art in Baltimore and Bachelor of Art in print journalism at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque.

I’ve been building complex software for IBM and Tekzenit. It requires research of user behavior and problem-solving resulting in digital solutions.
