Designing simple, meaningful things with digital brands, agencies and product owners focused on creating a big impact.
I'm a digital product design lead (UI/UX) who enjoys designing simple, meaningful technology that helps people — like custom software, user interfaces, mobile apps, responsive sites and digital ecosystems.
Since I was little, my interests have revolved around empathy and making the world a little more beautiful. Interested in bringing the beauty of ease into digital spaces, my aim is to bring out the potential of a product and extend it into the digital world with honesty, thoughtfulness and simplicity.
Fun Facts About Me:
I'm Transylvanian-American and my name means "SMALL Magical Creature"
I'm the first of my family to be born in the States
When not designing, you'll find me:
GETTING MY ZEN ON (I'M TRAINING TO BECOME A MEDITATION TEACHER)
TRAVELING TO a remote corner of the world
GETTING MY HANDS DIRTY WITH ABSTRACT PAINTING AND
IMPROVISING jazz piano—I've been playing I WAS since 4-years-old!
