Hi, I’m Charles, a Designer living in San Francisco, working at Tactile.
I am a product designer with more than a dozen years of experience. Some of my work has won awards. Before I got my Design Degree I also studied Biology, Business and Computer Science.
I have worked for places like Apple, Kosmix (acquired by Walmart), YesVideo and Humboldt State University; and have freelanced for Clique Media, Milliways Ventures, Rocketship.vc, and Target, among others.
I built apps that have been featured by The New York Times, Staff Picks on the Apple App Store, and featured in Pocket Sommelier on the App Store in the US, UK, France, Germany & more.
My designs have received awards from The Council for Advancement and Support of Education, and eduStyle. I was interviewed by AdBusters Magazine in 2006 explaining the then new social network… Twitter.
