About

For over ten years, I have worked on B2B and B2C products on Android, iOS, web, and desktop platforms from concept to production, owning Digital Experiences and User Interfaces. I am adept at approaching challenges through quantitative and qualitative research, testing, and iteration.

My goal is to make software more enjoyable by creating solutions that derive directly from real users scenarios and reduce pain points. User interfaces should look beautiful and help people resolve issues simply, without creating more problems.

My approach to User-Centered Design is to balance customer and business needs, push the boundaries of engineering, and design products, experiences, and applications that serve to create the best possible experience.
