I'm a Product Designer with 15+ years experience in automotive, gaming, machine-learning, healthcare, education, recycling, real estate, e-commerce, CRM and many others. Although I consider myself a generalist, I’m constantly handpicking challenges that help me grow as a designer and as a human being. I love being being deeply involved into the intellectual process of bringing a product to life. I take pride in doing things well, down to the tiniest detail and I don’t execute ideas without trying to challenge the status quo in one way or another. I apply this to my job, my hobbies, myself and all of my relationships.

What thrills me about Product Design, is the research and the detective work. Using cognitive psychology, discovering and unraveling that mysterious set of circumstances that lead to a delightful experience, and ultimately finding one of those solutions that fit everything together, even in the most obscure corner cases. But I’m also mindful about the social influence of my work. Which is a subtle, yet huge responsibility to navigate around. That’s why I take upon myself to speak and teach about psychology and design with every opportunity I get, and spread that earning for solving "mysteries".
