His technical capabilities coupled
with his outstanding talent for
creative design made the entire
project effortless for me.

—David Saliba, iGATE Capital


Branding and relationship building drive quality and standards. Able to prioritize and coordinate efforts within a team while monitoring and sharing responsibility for deliverables has been daily activity for the majority of Kenn's career.

Maintaining consistency in design and throughout project cycles is the strongest attribute of Kenn's skill set. Beyond a production level, Kenn pushes team collaboration with attention to detail and mastery of wordsmithing and layout as priorities of UI design. Obsessing over detail of on-screen messaging and uniform delivery of data and information creates a stronger brand appearance, better impression, and is a true passion for Kenn and the basis of providing memorable and efficient user experiences that build loyalty and instill confidence in brand.
