Strategic Design Thinker & Design Maker

What do you do?

I'm currently focused on making user-friendly, inclusive, and modular designs for screens and developing effective design systems for forward thinking companies.


I love making things, designing and tinkering with code. I found that I have a knack for solving complex UI and UX problems for the responsive web, and enjoy designing and building for its multiple form factors that betters the overall human experience.
