Irene Rivera (she, her) is currently an interaction design student at Santa Monica College.

She utilizes user research, rapid prototyping, usability testing and high fidelity mock-ups to arrive at solutions that satisfy both people and organization goals. She prides herself in being self-driven. But she also thrives in, and helps to nurture, highly collaborative environments.

When she's not designing, you can find her hanging at the beach, taking photos of cacti and listening to Chicago house music (sometimes in that order) .


Selected as one out of fifteen community college students in the Los Angeles metropolitan area to be part of Snap Design Academy 2021.

Associates Degree in Graphic Design

User Experience Certificate from Santa Monica College
