I’m happily carrying on an intertwined career path where design practice and design education became keys to the development of a healthy creative mind.

Currently, I’m engaged in several start-up projects working on the UX/UI side of things as well as the business planification of the development. I am sitting in the directors’ board of a crowdfunding platform known as venturEase while supporting the selected projects with design consulting when required.
