RONALD JAY GERVACIO
UX RESEARCH & DESIGN
Hi! I’m Ronald Jay Gervacio, my friends and family call me RJ. I’m a UX professional based in New York City.
I enjoy problem-solving, observing human emotions and behaviors while interacting with products, advocating for usability, and delivering enjoyable experiences. My purpose is to share my knowledge and talent in creating solutions that can improve people’s daily tasks.
I’m adventurous, driven, energetic, focused, and passionate when it comes to doing things that I love. On my free time, I love doing CrossFit and traveling with my wife and our dog, Luna. These two things have allowed me to draw positive energy, push myself beyond limits, and inspired me to become better in my profession.
