My name's Cougar.
I'm a designer because I love crafting experiences for people. Currently I'm working on a personal project and doing freelance design consulting for the summer 2015. After that I'll be looking to join a fast-paced product team in the SF Bay Area.
Below you'll find my resume, portfolio, and all that jazz.
Thanks for visiting!
