Being an entrepreneur lets me conceive and act on things that are meaningful to me.

I’m a UX Designer

For as long as I can remember, I’ve instinctively attempted a left brain / right brain balance. Logic and analysis appeal to me as greatly as creativity and aesthetics. UX design therefore represented left-right brain balance in software, web and mobile design. Once I wrapped my brain (both sides) around that, I knew I found my place.
