A digital innovator with award-winning international experience in design, UI & UX, product management, creative problem solving, strategic thinking and online branding.
With a passion for all things digital, I offer a diverse set of expertise with hands-on experience necessary to excel in today’s global economy. Over the course of my career, I have worked for and within a variety of industry sectors worldwide such as information technology, e-commerce, travel, telecommunication, media, logistics and healthcare.

Apart from devising and designing engaging user experiences, I also pride myself for setting up and leading in-house design teams, hiring and mentoring talents, and streamlining business processes for optimal productivity.

I’m ambitious for great work and eager to make a difference by being fully aware of creative challenges, technical constraints and cross-media concerns.
