I am UI/UX designer with several years experience in the industry. I work in large and complex projects, taking initial concepts and translating them into innovative products.

I turn big ideas into product through a user-centered design process, often including lean experimentation, rapid prototyping and user testing.

I have an extensive knowledge of web and mobile standards, browser limitations, UI frameworks, information architecture and the insight to apply these standards to create effective user experiences.
