Hey there 👋
I’m Benny, a Seattle-based creative who specializes in product design. I expertly craft scenarios that convey the user’s journey, while highlighting product features that delight customers. I work on all stages in a product’s life cycle including envisioning sessions with customers, building prototypes for user testing, and creating pixel perfect specs for devs. I’ve also done branding, art direction, and have spent a decade working in museum exhibitions. I believe in a holistic approach to design, as it offers broader expressions and decisions are backed by supporting data.

I'm always interested in taking about the future of design, how technology can best benefit humanity, and work that is community oriented or with not-for-profits. Contact me and let's talk about opportunities to collaborate.
