Hello! I'm Bonica. I'm a queer, Latinx creative living in Austin, Texas with my amazing wife, Laura, and our grandma kitty, Sophie.

I’ve spent the last decade creating my own path across states and industries as an art buyer, digital asset manager, and photographer. In January 2020, I decided to leverage my creative experience and focus on UX/UI design at the University of Texas at Austin. 
At my core, I'm a problem solver with a passion for user-centered design, an eye for aesthetics, and the desire to tackle complex projects that contribute to the ecosystem of good. I'm hungry for an opportunity to do purposeful work that makes a difference alongside a diverse, seasoned team. 
When I'm not in front of a computer (and when COVID calms tf down), you can find me rolling fifties on Skee-ball lanes, swimming in the Comal River, producing the laughs on comedy stages, and playing my new favorite sport, Pickleball, with my equally fierce and competitive wife.​​​​​​​

Skee-ball Life
The Brewskee-ball community is filled with amazing folx from skee-to-shining-skee. Here's a little more on the skee-ball side of me.
