Hi there! I'm Jimmy
Currently, I'm crafting product experiences at Jostle where I'm the Lead Designer driving the redesign of the most used view in our SaaS intranet platform. Before this, I was at RED Academy where I spearheaded agency teams to build two mobile apps, three websites, a SaaS dashboard, and four product strategies.
I chose product design as my career path because I realized it was a position where I could leverage the full breadth of my diverse skill set. A melting pot of experiences in finance, project coordination, marketing, and design actually turned out to be ideal for crafting products and experiences that help people.
Back in 2015 I started learning design after work and on the weekends to add a creative outlet to my finance position.
Over the next few years, I'd fine-tune my craft and build a fantastic client list. This client list would eventually result in exciting opportunities to re-brand provincial organizations, craft advertising campaigns for startups and curate guides sent to 110,000+ residents.
A life-changing opportunity
After a UI Design bootcamp producing websites, apps and brands for leading businesses in Vancouver, I received a scholarship from Rogers Communication (1 of 4 recipients out of 250+ applicants).
During the 6-month intensive program, I was the driving force leading agency teams 6 days a week through projects for industry clients ranging from international eCommerce brands to app startups.
The experiences and learning opportunities were an ideal launching pad for my product design career.
I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list
I love immersing myself in new foods and cultures. Seeing the world through a new lens and discovering what normal is from that perspective really motivates my wanderlust.
I'm an enthusiastic-to-a-fault paw-rent to my fur ball extraordinaire, Bruno. He's got an uncanny ability to signal the pause button on life and is a 24/7 beacon of unlimited affection.
Feel free to reach out for more information, collab opportunities, or just a friendly hello.
