ABOUT

I'm a digital product designer, commonly known in the tech industry as "product designer" or "UX/UI designer" (I personally prefer computing interface designer). I've designed programming environments for kids, marketplaces for the biggest eCommerce platform, and AI-driven chat search engines. I've also launched and grown premium subscription services, A/B tested growth funnels, done product roadmaps, written company strategy, lead user research & user testing, project management, creative direction, and more.

In a past life, I co-founded an eCommerce startup, a social network for creators, as well as a small web agency. I taught front-end development to teenage girls. As a consultant, I helped launch direct-to-consumer furniture brands, and programmed corporate CRM tools. To see my full resume and portfolio, please send an email.
