Hello, I'm Kenny. 
I'm currently the Director of Product, Design Systems at Upwork. 
I have over a decade of experience building and working closely with cross-disciplinary teams ranging from UX/UI design, research, engineering, branding and industrial design. 
While working for award winning design agency, Lunar (McKinsey & Co.) I worked with clients ranging from start up to Fortune 500 to create memorable, user-driven design experiences. Some of these clients include; Intel, Herman Miller, Hewlett Packard, Logitech, Rubbermaid, Alpine Music, Ziploc and SanDisk. 
At Upwork, I currently lead a globally distributed Design Systems team that's responsible for a range of scalable product foundations including, UX/UI component and patterns libraries, accessibility standards, visual design language, product branding and much more. 
In addition to my full-time role at Upwork, I'm also an advisor at Wildernesslabs.co, an enterprise-grade iOT hardware, and software company that's leading the future of embedded and scalable technology. 
Above all, I'm interested in working with people who share the same passion to turn thoughtful, creative and compelling ideas into real and meaningful product experiences.
If you're interested in learning more, please feel free to send me a message.
