Meet Renata

Chicago-Based Product, UX, and Engineering Hybrid

I’ve participated in many areas of the product lifecycle over the course of my career: I began in design, curiosity led me to development, and a need to quantify the “why” of what gets built is how I landed in product. I bring a mix of creative and technical experience to the table, and use this combination of skills to encourage collaborative exploration of the big-picture opportunities each project brings.

I began freelancing in 2006 and continue to offer my services in a part-time capacity. The work allows me to keep my technical skills fresh and overall experience varied. My core areas of expertise lie in custom WordPress and JavaScript development (most commonly WP themes and plugins and both vanilla and ReactJS).

I live for the “AHA!” moments enabled by clear communication, vision, and teamwork. I am confident that my passion for creating intuitive solutions that are as pleasing as they are functional will shine through on any project we may collaborate on!
