I am passionate about the web and love the whole development process, from conceptualizing to designing and building a web application.
I love the web and I love designing for it. I design with the user in mind and believe that the magic lies in the details.
Building a web application with clean code and seeing it come to life is super rewarding!
I believe in the importance of research and thrive on finding the right questions and answers to develop an inspiring concept.
A picture is worth a thousand words! True true. I am a great photographer and have a good eye for finding the right picture for the job.
I have acquired a well rounded work experience in the last 10 years. From freelance and independent projects to working for companies, laying out their design strategy.
