About me

I’m a digital designer specializing in motion design and UI interaction design. I have strong animation and video editing skills and lots of experience creating elegant customer experiences across all platforms. I take an iterative approach to motion and UX/UI concepts and prototypes, and collaborate closely with product and engineering teams to bring ideas to life. I’m also really interested in new technology and software. At Amazon I mentored other designers and ran multiple training sessions for After Effects, InVision and Principle to broaden the team’s motion and prototyping capabilities. I believe that interaction has become an essential part of design and love creating delightful UI animations and user journeys that help to tell a story. In my spare time I also enjoy video editing, interior design, furniture design, visualizing renovation ideas with 3D modeling, doing DIY projects and building furniture.
