My name is Arix. I'm based in NYC and I solve design problems for startups.

I’m passionate about new technologies and growing industries—like augmented reality, gaming, and the future of work. I enjoy playing competitive games, traveling, visiting museums, and engaging in insightful conversation with my peers.

Principles

I’m a strong believer in defining beliefs. By writing my personal principles out, they act as a guide towards where I want to grow.

  • ✦ Continuously keep goals
    I regularly plan, write, and review my personal goals in 6 and 12 month intervals.
  • ✦ Leadership is listening
    I always try to lend a hand to my team while letting them stay responsible for their work.
  • ✦ Work smarter

    Better productivity is often a matter of improving efficiency, not adding more time.
  • ✦ Relentless positivity
    There's almost always a solution to be found. You just have to keep looking.
