ABOUT

I am an interaction designer and strategic thinker, curious about art, crafts, literature, philosophy, economics, maths and life in general. I came from a business strategy background, but was always passionate about aesthetics and a bit of a tinker and hacker in my nature. This eventually led to go from business and strategy to completely devote myself to design. Today, I work with a great team and a remarkable studio at Ustwo in London. Recently, I have almost come full circle — as some of my work involves how design is becoming a strategic tool for business.
