My Best Fred

I’m a Mexican immigrant who grew up aspiring to be like Walt Disney and create magical experiences for people everywhere.

About

Full Name

Over the years, I have been fortunate to work with innovative companies whose mission is to create magical experiences for people worldwide and have individually contributed end-to-end experiences to help meet those goals. 

 

I believe design is transformative and magical. It provokes a feeling and inspires action. For that reason, I’m motivated to create meaningful work, informed by research and data, that lays the initial conditions to inspire positive actions in daily life.

 

Currently Associate Director of Product Design for Physical Retail at Wayfair, previously at Amazon, Starbucks, & Uber.
