Interaction Design / Service Design / Software Design / Digital Product Design

 

Hi, I am a Multi-disciplinary Designer who focus on software and digital product design. Currently I am working at United Technologies in NYC but In my past career paths I worked at places such as Uber, Squarespace, AKQA, R/GA and CP+B.

My role at these places varied based on the needs, scale and operation capacity of the teams. I have fulfilled my design duties from an individual contributor perspective to more of people managing roles as a design manager.

Design for me is really about creating meaningful behaviors and interactions for the end users and making sure all paths to their goals are frictionless and delightful.

When I am not working on commercial things, I like taking care of plants, eating ramen, making random physical things and enjoys techno music in dark warehouses.
