Visual design

This is a skill that I have been practicing for years and is most confident of. I am constantly playing with space, contrast, rhythm, elements, color, typography. I am also particularly engaged in creating illustrations and iconographies.

Interaction design

This is a skill that I have been practicing and honing in recent years and I come to really enjoy doing it more and more. I love collaborating with PMs, engineers and solving complicated problems, even so with actual users engaged.

Motion design

I love making animations! I am pretty experienced with motion-graphics and prototyping SVG animations.


This is a skill that I am trying to develop while working with awesome researcher coworkers. Right now I can do some quick usability testing as well as user interviews. I enjoy working with fellow researchers!
