About

Hey there, I'm Darío Figueroa 👋🏼. I'm a born-again believer and Chicagoan currently based out of San Antonio. Proudly Guatemalan and Mexican.

I'm a designer who codes with years of experience in visual and interaction design, design systems, and front-end development. At work I'm designing and rethinking the Money Movement experience at Frost Bank and trying to improve our design system.

Before my time at Frost I've held a variety of positions from being a freelance web designer to working at startups, agencies, and Fortune 500 companies alike.

Outside of work I really love cooking, play a lot of videogames, been reading some manga and manhwa, and been wanting to get into rock climbing more.
