His name is Draper...like Don Draper. No, it isn't a real cigarette. No dog lungs were harmed in the taking this photo.

I'm Robert del Prado... 

...in my former life, I ran operations for schools. I learned UX through General Assembly and lots of self-education, have a Master’s (MPA in Public Policy), and have designed for various orgs from Fortune 50 companies to cities to startups.

I like oceans, dogs, great urban planning, dark spirits, and anything with skulls on it. I’m a New Yorker but have lived in Philadelphia and now reside with my wife, dog, and cat in Playa Vista, CA. 

I'm a proud child of immigrant parents, who came from Cuba and Puerto Rico to NYC in the 60s. When not designing or reading or writing about design, I'm traveling with my wife, doing some type of fitness, figuring out how to not eat pork, playing with my dog (he doesn't usually smoke), and trying to live mindfully.
