About

I’m an independent creative with 10+ years of experience focusing on the world wide web. I’ve collaborated with various studios, brands, and individuals, where I mainly worked within interdisciplinary and agile teams, either remote or on-site.

In fast-changing conditions, I admire work that stands the test of time. I believe less is more — in design as well as in code. Currently, I specialize in designing and prototyping user-centric interfaces for the web.
