My name is Fabio Nishimura. I go by Bobby.
I am from Brazil, so I speak Portuguese.
I live in California, so I drive a Prius.
I love photography, so I have a big camera.
I love interacting with gadgets, so I design UX.

I take work seriously, but not always myself.

Fabio "Bobby" Nishimura
UX / Software Engineer
(Web Technologies)


My passion is storytelling. I tell stories through user experiences.

Sometimes it’s through graphic design, motion graphics or sometimes it’s through front-end web applications.

Design should be simple. Intuitive. Comprehensive.

My formal education is in Cinematography and lighting for the moving image. But I always was fascinated by interactive design.
