Mika
Caldera

Hi, I’m Mika. I’m an experienced designer and front-end developer. I’m a strong communicator who takes a systematic approach to problem solving. This is reinforced with a balance of organizational skills, tireless determination, and empathy. Through observation and analysis, I learned to create print and digital products meant to inspire and engage people. I look to cultivate an immersive humanist and thoughtful way to work or to make work.  Authenticity and diversity are important to me because I believe honesty is the best way to solve problems and grow. I enjoy challenges, strengthening systems and materializing innovative solutions.
