About

As a Senior User Experience Designer & Lead, Solutions Architect / Management Consultant.

I understand the business of fintech, telco, banking, insurance, digital media, social media, advertising, marketing,
branding, and taking a creative, strategic and people-centric view of how to connect consumers and brands. I have a good grasp
of different types of mediating technologies that can best be used to engaging experiences where the connection happens.

I sketch technology, just like a visual creative can sketch with a pencil. I love being strategic, and the things I come
up with make sense, and it's not about technology just for the sake of technology. Having more then a decade of online
experiences I design and address real needs for people and brands.

I have a creative technological view and share a creative and inquisitive view of the world. I'm on top of technology
trends, am not afraid of coding (just as a modern visual designer isn't afraid of Photoshop, Illustrator or Sketch), and take both a
strategic and tactical approaches to creativity.

I also understand that we're in business, and we're solving business goals by addressing people's needs as a priority.
