Hello! My name is Satya. I'm an Industrial Designer based in Los Angeles, California and I specialize in UX and Product Design. I lived and pursued my bachelor's degree at Pontificial Xaverian University in Bogota, Colombia. Studying a career in Spanish gave me the necessary tools and exposure to become bilingual. I'm passionate about user design and product design but more about teaching. I enjoy the process of sharing the knowledge I've gathered through the years, and you can expect me to be very patient and committed to your learning process. I studied a design career that taught me the principles of design and how software programs can be used to make your ideas one step closer to reality. I have experience with Adobe Suite, 3D modeling, User Experience software programs like Figma and Canva. I want to engage with my students, understand their motivations, and learn from them as well.
We will start by getting to know one another a bit so I can gain a clear idea of what you are hoping to gain from our sessions. Whether it be an intro to a software or taking developing a full start to finish project. After our first meeting I will use my 13+ years of professional experience to develop a unique lesson plan for you and your goals.
