About Me

Howdy! My name is Alfonso, and I’m a Seattle-based Product & UX Designer with a passion for creating intuitive and engaging user experiences. After many years as a Mechanical Engineer, I found my true calling in design, where I can blend empathy, functionality, and sharp visual aesthetics.

Most recently, I worked in the Training and Coaching branch of a rapidly growing sales enablement platform, Highspot. There, I worked on new features, updates, and fixes, contributed to an evolving design system, and served as the SME for Highspot’s custom-branding offering. Collaborating closely with designers, PMs, developers, and other stakeholders, I thrived in a dynamic environment that fueled my growth as a designer.

My extracurricular activities and previous work experiences enhance my abilities as a designer and contribute to my overall strengths as a professional. In my spare time, I run an electronic dance music events production outfit called Loosely Based, where I can entertain my interests in graphic design, branding, music, and creating memorable experiences. My background in mechanical and electrical engineering has honed my ability to work seamlessly in cross-functional teams, communicate effectively, persuade stakeholders, and adapt to change. Both of these roles have increased my ability to manage complex projects.

By leveraging my diverse skills and experiences, I aim to bring a unique perspective to every project. I’m always open to new connections and love discussing all things design. Thanks for stopping by; feel free to reach out!
