ABOUT ME

I am a creative thinker and problem solver. I use those skills as a User Experience Architect to design modern interfaces that seamlessly blend user needs with business requirements. I also enjoy evaluating and redesigning existing user interfaces, which my portfolio work reflects.

I graduated with a Masters Degree in Human-Computer Interaction from the Georgia Institute of Technology in May 2013. While there, I specialized in Computing (wireframing and prototyping interactive designs).

My heart belongs to the details. I actually always found them to be more important than the big picture. Nothing works without details. They are everything, the baseline of quality.
