About Olivia

14 years of experience as full-stack product Engineer, designer & MANAGER


I specialize in product, hardware, software, and mobile design, usability, and implementation. I'm certified in Agile, Kanban, & Scrum project management. My typical projects include the start to finish production of: web applications (Saas, ERP, PLM, Intranet, etc.), desktop software, native mobile applications for iOS/ Android, custom smart devices, wearables, medical devices, and designing for touch, gesture & VR.

I have worked with global companies and have extensive experience understanding and designing for the unique needs of foreign markets. 

I have two career passions, one is to be in a role supporting a product from all phases through research, development and production; the other career passion is to manage, grow, and support teams of UX/ UI/ Interaction/ Visual designers and developers.
