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 such a treat to work with. He is a great mixture of valuable traits in a designer: resourceful, proactive, flexible, insightful. He is easy to work with and collaborates very well with others, and can jump in on tasks at almost any point in the UX process from research to prototyping. I recommend him highly and without reservation - he would make a great addition to almost any design team.
— Danielle Malik | Design Lead, Catalyst Innovation Partners | Founder, Instructor
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.
