I'm Erika, a visual designer, UX designer, and systems thinker at Google, with eight years of user-centered design experience.
I like to think of myself as a design jack-of-all-trades, with an emphasis on visual design. My expertise is shown best through fine tuning visual details and identifying inconsistent patterns throughout the UX process.
I love to solve problems using human-centered approaches by always putting the user first, and that's why I love UX. I work closely with diverse users around the world to find creative ways for them to intuitively and delightfully use the products that I work on.
Working at Google allows me and my work to reach millions of people and help solve problems like the equity gap that exists in education though design. I genuinely believe in the good that Google sets out to accomplish with creative and innovative technology applications.
