Design Researcher creating experiences to catch up to the future.

I am a hybrid physical + digital products/experiences designer, a creative problem solver and an obsessive learner. I am a lover of tinkering stuff and a coffee pundit in the making.

I am naturally curious about people, their motivations and how they make decisions. As a researcher, I work with people to understand their explicit and implicit needs and help articulate them in actionable ways. As a designer, I work as a problem solver bridging the gap between user and solution. Combining the two fields, I enjoy designing creative unconventional, yet totally adaptable solutions to everyday problems.
