My Story

Hello, I'm Brian Washington

I’m a UX designer from San Diego, California currently working with blockchain design systems and recently completed an internship at Wix. Before this, I worked on Sensi, solving complex design problems around somatosensory disorders. I graduated with a master's in human-computer interaction from Reichman University and hold a bachelor's in communications and media.

The shift in my career happened when I was working at a web development agency and saw how design thinking can solve real-world challenges at scale. I knew that I needed to be a part of a bigger tech industry as a whole which is why I dove into blockchain and made aliyah to Israel. In my journey through UX design, I’ve had the opportunity to work in both startup and enterprise environments on projects related to healthcare, patents, mobility, and gaming.

Coming from a background in both web development and design, I love connecting the dots between business goals, technical constraints, and user satisfaction. In my free time, I enjoy exploring nature, tasting new cuisines, and looking for spontaneous adventures.
