Who Am I?

I like to think of myself as a UX problem solver. I thrive on getting into the nitty-gritty depths of a project, to make sure every aspect, be it a product or service is as smooth and as functional as possible, for any user. From apps, to online media, or physical interactions, I continuously focus on creating intuitive, seamless, and pleasing interactions, as I value usability over aesthetics (to a certain degree).

A product might be the most beautiful ever constructed but, if the user cannot easily navigate it; the beauty is lost.

Beautiful design should be shared through outstanding user experiences.


My Skills

User Interface

Crisp and clean visuals are an important aspect of any project, grabbing the users attention.

Interactions

Visuals only get the user so far. Intuitive interactions are the core of any product.

Programming

Through Arduino, and Processing I throughly enjoy bringing a digital concept into reality.

Video Production

From planning, to shooting, to editing. I have a passion for cinematography, both production and consumption.

Effeciency

Investing time into preperation before production leaves more time for itteration.

Research

A product needs to be a fit for the target market, but also usable for the wider audience.
