Designing tech* products
with ambitious teams.

For over a decade, I have been designing technology products and services with top-tier tech teams. Beyond merely creating user interfaces and interaction designs, I set design strategies and lead design teams to turn futuristic visions into reality. Particularly interested in teaming up to build novel products from the ground up, or develop unique features that resonate and inspire. My ultimate commitment is to build honest and purposeful products that truly deserve to exist.

As of today, I'm available for new projects.
