Hello, my name is Tom Alvarez. As my career profile illustrates, I am well-prepared to meet and exceed your expectations. Having served as a product design manager, I am accustomed to the rigors of fast-paced, innovation-driven environments requiring sharp attention to detail, consummate accuracy, and outstanding communication skills. If given the opportunity, I will work tirelessly to deliver similar results for you while partnering with your staff to accelerate the achievement of your immediate and long-range goals.

Further, I would bring the following strengths to your team:

  • Motivational team leadership and collaboration skills that helps align engineers, artists and product development departments around common launch goals.
  • Exceptional communication skills needed to effectively glean and reflect internal and external customer design requirements.

I am devoted to innovating, effective product designs. Over 16 years of effectively translating business requirements into innovative designs. Invested in cultivating a dynamic creative team by prioritizing mentoring and ongoing education. A detail-oriented creative director that has been very effective at building consensus to ensure projects meet all milestones, deadlines, and budget requirements. Exudes strong passion for the integration of new technology trends and best practices that can optimize and elevate user interfaces and user experiences.

"Tom has been an amazing creative director, boss, mentor, and friend. I have been working with Tom since August of 2021 and have learned a tremendous amount under his tutelage. Tom is great at cultivating talent on his team and allowing others to reach their hidden potential. He is a natural-born leader who is also great at allowing others on his team to shine. Tom would be a great asset to any design team."

"Tom has always been a pleasure to work with. He is always filled with creativity and always willing and open to take critical feedback for his work and grow from it. The quality of product he was able to help us achieve has been unparalleled. I appreciated the time I spent working with Tom as he is an honest and passionate person and his work speaks for itself. I am looking forward to working with Tom again in the future."

"Tom single handedly took a decade old piece of software and transformed the experience to something beautiful, which became the vision for upgrading the UI/UX across the entire platform. He is not afraid to strive to be the best version of himself and is willing to take on any challenge presented his or his team's way. He is the glue that turns any team into winners. He is someone I admire and am proud to call a friend. I would recommend Tomas for any Creative role in a heartbeat and make him a leader from day one. Not only is he valuable enough, but he has too many gifts not to be in a leadership role by now. I give him my most prestigious recommendation for any company searching for a winner."

"Tom Alvarez is a very valuable creative asset and an excellent teammate in general. He is very goal-oriented, has quite an eye for detail, and consistently wants to make sure that things are done right. While I was at Electronic Arts, Tom served as the sole artist on a team developing fantasy football applications and rose to the challenge in every situation, despite having no other creative voice on which to rely. Not content to simply rely on his current set of skills, Tom shows a passion for always wanting to learn more and to take his game to the next level. In addition to his professional talents, Tom also has a very big heart and is simply a great guy to have around!"
