This page provides a narrative presentation of my professional life. For a more concise overview, please view or download my CV.
I'm a User Experience Designer with a purpose to create meaningful interactions and build interfaces that enable the target audience to achieve their goals.
I have a bachelor's degree (BSc) in Mathematics, which, among others, taught me how to apply structured thinking into creative design and draw parallelisms from mathematics problem solving techniques.
I have a masters (MSc) in Human Computer Interaction with Egonomics from UCL, which taught me how to apply science and psychology to User Experience and Interaction Design decisions.

I've communicated the animation design and requirements with Stakeholders, end users during the usability testing sessions, and Development teams using a variety of tools such as:
Even though professionally trained as a visual designer, I appreciate a good design, and enjoy contributing to visual design ideas when needed. I use tools like:
When I was working for RedKite Financial Markets, I was also producing visual design assets for the financial platform, due to the lack of a dedicated designer. I've also created the visual design language for the "No Excuse" app and made the "Ruby the Robot" character for the iOS sticker project.
Though not a professional developer, I was exposed to development during my "Digital Systems and Technology enhanced Education" MSc where I was taught the basics of:
