Hi there I’m Mondana! I’m a Senior UX Designer at American Express

I have worked in the design space for 15 years with a wide range of design experience from product design, visual design, branding/graphic design, and user experience.

When I’m not designing, you’ll find me either painting or riding my bike somewhere exciting and trying not to break something.

Like so many others, I picked up biking in March 2020 in an effort to avoid public transportation. I had always been a casual rider before and was afraid of biking on the streets of NYC. Like everything else in my life, my curiosity and desire to learn helped me succeed in accomplishing my first bike tour from NYC to Washington D.C. I went from novice biker in March to completing a 315 mile bike tour in August. When I reached the Washington Monument, I was overwhelmed by it all and cried tears of joy at how I was able to accomplish something I thought impossible in just a few months.

I am thankful that through my design journey I have become a designer who can do it all, and enjoys it all! Dedication, teamwork, and grit are just a few of the things you get from me, no matter what the project (or hobby) is.
