About myself
UX / UI designer with experience in e-commerce and degrees in civil engineering and economics. Education and 8 years of experience in the field of economics allow me to better understand the financial tasks and the technical part of creating products. My love of drawing with my sense of user-oriented design made me look at how products are used and what users most appreciate in interfaces. I like to find improvements to create the best user interface in both physical and digital space.
