I am an end to end  Senior Product Designer experienced in building and scaling products across different Geos.

I have expertise in running entire design processes taking part on full product development cycles, from initial research, ideation, conceptualisation, and UI design, to testing and validation as well as building and maintaining Design Systems.


I am passionate about creating new ideas and meaningful experiences while keeping targets and the latest technologies in mind. I believe collaboration amongst disciplines and demonstrating a deep understanding of stakeholders and users is crucial to achieving defined goals.

Through my work in various environments, I have proven my passion and professionalism for design. I strongly believe that design should engage people and maximize their experiences through a combination of inspiring visuals and mind-teasing simple solutions.
