 WHY HIRE ME?

My Unique Selling Point as a designer is my ability to drive impact and growth across any domain by leveraging my passion, skills, and experience. With an MBA, MS in Human-Computer Interaction and a decade of design experience, I bring a powerful combination of business acumen and user-centric design expertise.

 

As a curious and motivated individual, I embrace challenges, ask probing questions, and continuously seek inspiration to enhance lives. I believe a designer should advocate for both the user and business objectives, finding the sweet spot that drives growth and delivers exceptional experiences.

 

I seamlessly transition between individual contributor and team leader roles, guiding teams to create innovative designs that align with business goals. My track record showcases my ability to transform complex ideas into compelling narratives that inspire and drive success, including leading pre-sales efforts to acquire new clients.

 

These qualities make me an ideal candidate for design lead roles, where I can be a valuable asset to any organization. Together, let's embrace the art of the possible, push boundaries, and craft designs that leave a lasting impact on the world while contributing to business success and growth.
