ABOUT ME

I like making things interact beautifully, creating design solutions, and communicating captivating stories.

I've recently had the opportunity to work an award-winning design studio in San Francisco, and an in-house agency in the wine & spirits industry, focusing on digital design. I got to work with and learn from numerous creative people, and worked on multiple brands and campaigns; designing websites, reaching consumers and conveying their brand story.

 

 

Let's chat. I'm currently looking for exciting new work in the digital design area, looking to become a Visual/Interaction Designer. Please feel free to shoot me a message if you want to talk about design, the great outdoors, sandwiches, or anything else that strikes your fancy.
