Hi!
Multidisciplinary designer with a passion for AI, the human mind and storytelling.

My design practice involves understanding and analyzing the user’s needs and motivations, the communication of these findings in an accessible way, and the exploration and lean iteration of new services and experiences.
This whole process generates actionable insights that inform the client about both short term and long term design directions to take.
