About Me

Since my childhood, I've had a passion for art and a curiosity to discover the way things work. I have always wanted to explore a creative career path that led me to graphic design. After working in the field for a number of years I wanted to dig deeper. I heard about UX Design, did some research and it became apparent that this was the missing ingredient.

 

It puts the user in the center of the design, as a highly empathetic and intuitive person this caught my attention. I believe there is more to great design than meets the eye and I am inspired to learn and grow as a professional UX Designer with a strong UI focus.
