People First, Ego Last

Hiyo, I'm May Sermonia!
I’m a Visual Designer focused on amplifying company brand through engaging web & mobile experiences.

I'm a proud first generation, Filipino-American, native to California but currently globetrotting in Kailua, Hawai'i.

I've always been enchanted with the complex relationship between humans and technology and thus pursued a Bachelors Degree in Cognitive Science at University of California, Merced in 2015. This laid the foundation for my understanding of human interactions/perception and grew my passion for technology.

In the past 7 years, I've worked primarily with various startups (Pre-IPO, Seed round to Series C) supporting and strategizing with executive teams to build the administrative and facility infrastructure at scale. These role were critical in growing my ability to be resourceful as a project manager and allow me to take initiative on projects that I was passionate about, such as design and DEI. My biggest strengths are cultivating a collaborative work environments that improves team morale and increases OKR success.

With design as my full-time "yay" job, I currently offer web and mobile design services as a freelancer but ultimately hope to grow with a company long term who's mission has a positive impact on posterity.

Outside of work, you can find me taking photos, managing my etsy shop or feeding my pet snake.
