About Me

Brandon Castillo

UX Designer

Atlanta, GA

I got into UX design because of a life-long love for problem-solving.

My 5-years of experience in working with small/medium-sized businesses has allowed me to take that love for solving problems to create products, services, and experiences that create tangible business results.

My current goal is to earn a position with an awesome design team to create stellar products, services, and businesses that customers love.
