I am a human-centered designer and educator with a passion for building digital experiences enhancing creativity and physical interactions.
Asking critical questions throughout the design process is my superpower during collaborative projects, and that empowers the teams I work with to diagnose problems earlier and to move towards right solutions. My lifetime goal is to keep learning new things every day and reflecting this knowledge on people through my designs and education. 
I am a flaneur deep down. Getting lost in the city, observing people, and sketching ideas are my favorites.
