About

Designing and optimizing online services and applications that work effectively, without complicating the life of the user. That's what I love to do.


I don’t make big plans upfront, but create and test to validate the assumptions. From business objectives to user research, from requirements to wireframes, and from functional design to user interface design and prototypes. I love each part of my work.


  • I'm passionate about UX and driven to design functional and usable interfaces.
  • I have a solid understanding of data-driven design, mobile strategy and web development.
  • I enjoy working in Scrum teams with experts on well-defined goals.
  • I have a deep sense of empathy, which fuels my passion to craft honest and meaningful experiences for people.
  • I embrace experimentation and I'm not afraid to be wrong.
  • I'm a creative, big-picture thinker obsessed with crafting the details.
  • I speak the language of the front-end and backend developer (to a certain degree).
  • I have a solid foundation in design principles and typography.
