This is the landing page for my startup, Loki. We designed this site using the design tool, Sketch. The goal of the site was both to inform people on how the Loki app functions as well as excite them into downloading it. We wanted to be very clear and concise, and spent many hours going through the images and copy to ensure clarity and brand consistency. We ultimately decided to add an additional "features" page to the site to provide further explanation on certain components of the app.

SeeClickFix is a web and mobile app that lets citizens report local, non-emergency issues which are communicated directly to local government. I was selected as project mangager of a team that was tasked to create a short film to easily pitch the value of SeeClickFix to government officials.
Check out the Testimonial the SeeClickFix team gave in response to the video we delivered to them.
Loki Investor Deck
This is the latest slide deck that I created and used for pitch competitions and investor presentations. As an entrepreneur, honing in on your pitch is instrumental is garning investor interest. I was able to win $20K and got Loki into 2 different accelerators by presenting at venture competitions.
IBM Virtual Cubicle
The Technology & Innovation group within the IBM CIO organization manages the internal Technology Adoption Program (TAP) to support the participation of innovators and early adopters. My team was tasked with taking inspiration from the "Birchbox" monthly subscription model to create a brand new product design that would incentivize use of the services. Our final deliverable was a prototype of a 3D interactive cube wherein each month employees would recieve an email that their cublicle has arrived, and they could log in to find interesting applications, connect with the user community and compete for rewards.
My experience as Founder and CEO of Loki gave me a ton of opportunity to practice and improve upon my public speaking skills. Being a good presentor isn't just about have well designed slides. You have to be able to quickly and concisely provide context to what you are presenting. I gave dozens of presentations while running Loki, and was able to garner multiple investment and grant opportunities as a result. Here is a presentation I did back in April 2018.
In addition to operating as president and CEO of Loki, I was also responsible for leading the product team to design and develop the app. This is a brief walkthrough of one of the main features of using Loki to watch live events.
