The world can be an overwhelming place, so I help people connect with experiences and brands by telling stories as a Product Designer"
From a self-taught teenager to an experienced designer, I've dedicated my career to crafting user experiences that are both delightful and accessible. Design has been my passion since I was 16, self-taught through YouTube, internships, and following inspiring designers. After 3 years, I dared to chase my dream, moving to the UK for a formal UX education. I completed masters in design where I gained a desire to empower everyone, regardless of ability, to engage with technology seamlessly. My Master's thesis project, "Able," was a turning point, transforming my passion into a concrete solution. Now, I bring both research and creative problem-solving to the table, I believe in creating designs that are intuitive, accessible, transparent, and user friendly. I also believe in watching the same old movies again. Other than designing I love to talk about philosophy, sketch, cook, and hike.
