What I Do

UX & Product Designer
As a product designer, I conceive and design wireframes, prototypes, and iterations for new and existing features. Additionally, I establish and maintain design systems, incorporating user research to inform design decisions.
Game Developer
I engage in the conceptualization, design, and implementation of video games utilizing the Unity Game Engine. Among my recent undertakings are the creation of a virtual reality puzzle game and the continuous development of a puzzle-platformer.

My Design Philosophy

socratic
Recognizing my limitations, I adopt a methodical approach to projects, thoroughly understanding the core problem by engaging with stakeholders and users. Seeking valuable insights, I integrate diverse perspectives into my designs, ensuring innovative and tailored solutions that meet stakeholders' specific needs.
ethical
I believe in designing to aid users in their tasks seamlessly. Prioritizing user-friendliness, simplicity, and avoiding frustrating elements are key. I staunchly avoid dark design patterns that could harm user experience for personal gain.
Fail Faster
I believe the best way to progress and move forward is by learning from your mistakes. I foster an environment where it is ok to make mistakes as long as we learn from them to make better design decisions.
