Currently, I am a Principal UX Designer for something fun. Recently, I led design for ESPN+, a streaming service that reached 1 million subscribers in 5 months. Previously, I led product design for CBS Sports & ESPN, with editorial design in a former life. I enjoy collaborating with people in media, sports, marketing, and technology.
As the Design Lead, we redesigned the entire CBS Sports Product Experience on apps, desktop, mobile web, and OTT devices. Soup to nuts - including Home Page, Sports Pages, Articles, GameTrackers, Scoreboards, Stats, Personalization, Registration, OnBoarding, Navigation, and more. We listened to user feedback, user interviews, and A/B testing. We migrated the editorial team from an archaic CMS to a modern CMS for efficiency & cross-platform publishing. And we also worked on March Madness, The Masters, and Super Bowl 50, which became the most watched live-stream Super Bowl ever (2017 Update: 2nd most watched live-stream Super Bowl ever).

As an Associate Art Director at ESPN, Juan was the Product Design Lead on ESPN apps, the most popular sports app on iOS & Android. The ESPN App was formerly known as the SportsCenter App, which was also formerly known as the ScoreCenter App - yes, it's confusing. The ESPN apps are consistently ranked at the top of the iOS & Android Sports Categories and has been featured multiple times, including Apple's WWDC.

Outside of design...
I play intramural hockey, softball, and volleyball. I tell myself that shooting a 100 in golf is ok. I still can't dunk.
