My background is in computer science. Made the transition to design long ago. I'm a mix of introvert and extrovert. I see myself as an analytical person yet creative. Highly collaborative and a team player. Empathetic and always the customer's voice.

I'm into speciality coffee. Hardcore PlayStation gamer. Casual photography.

That was a bit about me. What about you? If you wanna chat or you have questions just hit me up or check my tweets
