About Me

Hi, I'm Dario. I'm a product designer and freelancer currently based out of the Chicago area. I've done front-end development, product design, web design, and prototyping for both agencies and brands alike.

I spend too much time on Twitter and Destiny 2.

Hit me up and let's work on something together 👀.
