I'm a self-taught designer (yep, that's a thing!) with a developer background, specializing in simple and effortless experiences for both the devices we use today and the ones we’ll use in the future. Crafting high-quality products that people love to use is my passion, and I work tirelessly to achieve that goal.

Using the medium of motion and rapid prototyping I bring these experiences to life, visualizing the smallest interactions to entire user journeys. I strongly believe in open design, and encourage co-creation that can help deliver a better solution for users.

Accessibility and inclusion sit at the center of my process — technology should empower everyone and nobody should be left with a subpar experience.

I'm currently working on finishing my Computer Science degree, and am open for new work opportunities starting from July.

I was previously a Design Intern at Microsoft working on products such as Surface Duo, SwiftKey, Fluent Icons, and more. Before that, I worked independently on critically acclaimed concepts both by myself and with folks around the world. Awarded 2018-19 Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) for Windows Design.
