About Me

Professional Goals

My goals are to keep growing, make a difference to the people around me, and work on great products!
I’m looking for opportunities to solve complex problems and learn new technologies.
I’m looking for an environment that supports my drive to get things done.

Currently

I’m working at Paylocity, focusing on their Compensation Management experience.

I freelance on the side for non-profits and startups.

Experience

I have over nine years of experience working with development and design teams in both small and large organizations.  I’ve worked on physical products, B2B and B2C software, mobile apps and websites.

I’ve tried a lot of wireframe and prototyping tools – there are so many 😉

I have specialized experience in;

  • Utilities
  • Genomics / Bioinformatics
  • Medical Devices
  • Software Development

Past clients include Intuit, Synthetic Genomics, Sempra, Thomas Conveyor, Nuvasive, The Haitian Academy and Kan Pa Nou.

Background

I was born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in Haiti – I speak English, French, and Creole. I completed three years of medical school and two seasons of second-division soccer before I came to the states full-time.

For a number of years after the earthquake in Haiti, I ran a summer camp for displaced children in the Port-Au-Prince area.

I received my B.A in Economics from the University of San Diego (with a focus on Architecture). I’m really thankful for my professors, the deep user research and data analysis involved in economics has been invaluable in my UX work.
