Hey, I'm Da'rrell.
I'm a Product designer with skills and experiences in taking ideas from research to concept to prototype to handoff for production.
I'm a believer that equitable access to information and technology creates a more just and inclusive world. I'm determined to have a positive impact by transforming how people consume and comprehend products.
I've always had a curiosity about people's behavior, and for the past ten years, I’ve helped companies improve and implement design systems that improved employee engagement; redesigned performance appraisal systems to improve data collection and performance; co-led Partnership Development and marketing initiatives in higher education, and recruit exceptional people for life-changing roles.
To help close the equity gap, this year, I Founded Pineapple, a platform that allows people of color to network, engage, and find their voice in the tech/startup world. As Pineapple grows, I hope to collaborate on projects and help others land their dream job in tech and, in return, help organizations find diverse, talented people that will a better people experience for an inclusive audience.
I hold a master's in organizational behavior. My studies and previous consulting roles, coupled with my general curiosity and attention to detail, allowed me to see a greater need for visual and interaction design.
I'm based in Sacramento, California, and I'm available for projects and full-time work. Please do say hello — I look forward to hearing about your project.
