I’m a strong believer in the power of storytelling through design. Storytelling allow us for stronger connection with others, and I consider designers to be authors whose stories are conveyed through the products they create by touching on the core of experience. In my designs, I strive to not only address psychological needs and emotions but also create meaning with the stories I choose to tell.

Currently, I work as a Experience Designer at Moment, where I design responsive websites, and apps for clients in financial, healthcare, entertainment, and fashion industries.
