I’m Bo, a UX Designer.

I've led product design, built institutional buy-in around design thinking, conducted user research, and facilitated at design sprints tackling immigration and sexual health.

I'm currently putting my skills to work at Catalyst Innovation Partners design agency.

What are Collaborators saying?

Bo is driven by the power of design to build equity, understanding, and action. He’s self-directed, passionate, intuitive, and a great listener.
— Josh Silverman, Design Operations @ Twitter, Educator, Entrepreneur
It was a total pleasure managing Bo. He is unmatched in not only breaking down the importance of problems and perspectives, but also translating said importance in a meaningful way to different stakeholders. Unsurprisingly, Bo’s analytical processes paired with his ease in empathizing result in sharp and efficient products and designs. Any social impact organization would be lucky to have Bo on their team.
— Ria Carmin | Head of Product and Creative, FWD.us
Bo was a delight to work with on the Providence Foodshed Justice Mapping Project. Not only did his keen eye for information organization and ability to decipher connections between different data sets prove incredibly useful, he was a phenomenal team member who worked closely with researchers to ensure their data was presented properly on the site. Bo’s eagerness to tackle a problem while maintaining a welcoming and positive attitude was crucial to the project’s success.
