Preston Reyes

Good design makes platforms visually appealing. But it’s code artists like Preston who make them a delight to use.

People don’t often think of coders as being creative in the same way that, say, poets and songwriters are. But it’s my design background that helps me develop elegant code and functionality for digital platforms. Attention to design details, along with a knack for creative solutions, is what drives my work as a UX Engineer here at Oomph. I aim to build well organized, easily navigated sites that perform exceptionally well.

One aspect of my career I really appreciate is that it’s always required me to learn new things. Back in my design days, while working at a screen printing shop, I developed a color separation technique that won us a huge account with Gallo Winery. Later, as a designer and coder for brands like NBC, Edelman, and Ericsson, I honed my skills at problem-solving in demanding environments.

What keeps me grounded is spending time with my kids, or hiking in the wilderness. And, well, the heat coming off my CPU reminds me of my early days as a line cook — which might be where my creative problem-solving skills really began.
