Working-Vertical2

Long story short...

I'm a designer tackling business challenges using a human-centred approach. I believe the value of my work lays in understanding people, context, and systems to design solutions that create value for users as well as businesses.

I enjoy fast-paced environments, discovering cultures, learning new topics and collaborating with people that have different perspectives.
