I'm a self-driven design generalist with solid theoretical knowledge and practical skills that allow me to handle the design process with a "whatever it takes" mentality. I can lead projects from a strategic and operative point of view, contribute meaningfully to the research to glean insights, take part in concepting from interaction design to visual design as well as carry out the concept validation. I like to help with sales and business approaches, too, and I'm no stranger to front-end technologies either.
