My Love
I create user focused digital experiences
through thoughtfully cognitive, interaction and
visual design principles and tons of empathy.
With several years of experience
conceptualizing work flows, user journeys,
design systems, prototyping, I love every detail
of a product design process. I also love getting
my hands dirty in branding, icons design,
creating info-graphics, illustrations, and
components which involves any front-end
product design!
