About Me

I'm Nicholas Tasato, a designer focused on uncovering the who, what, when, where, why, and how behind the problems people face. I apply
that knowledge to design smart, useful, and enjoyable solutions. 

I've worked on 3 SaaS platforms. Currently, I'm designing a FinTech SaaS product for PwC New Ventures. Previously, I was helping small medium sized businesses automate their patient/customer communications for Demandforce owned by Internet Brands
