My strengths


Interaction
Design

User
Research
Visual &
Content
Code

I'm a full stack UX designer doing interaction design, user research, visual design and code.

I'm capable of taking a project end-to-end from design strategy all the way to implementation.

I've also managed design teams of up to 5 people.



Interaction Design

Interaction design principles are at the core of everything I do. I strive for a rich understanding of the user pain points and intent, along with the business goals. I rely on multiple sources of user research to make precise, informed design decisions and verify assumptions.

I get involved in every aspect of the user experience — the concept, navigation flow, content, visuals - all the way to code and analytics.

I'm a strong analytical thinker who loves pulling things apart, sorting, mapping, comparing, prioritizing and restructuring data in a logical way.

User Research

I've conducted more than 1000 user research sessions across 10 countries in the U.S., Scandinavia and South East Asia - and remote testing online.

I've done user testing, interviews, eye tracking and participatory design exercises. I typically summarize findings using personas or user journey maps.
I also utilize surveys and various analytics tools such as Google Analytics, Heap, Hotjar and Crazyegg.

I'm passionate about user research because I believe there is always a lot to learn — no user research session is the same. As a designer, being able to do user research has helped tremendously in design project because it allows for a quick and lean research process.

Visual Design & Content

Great content and visuals is an integral part of design. I avoid placeholder text, and rather come up with relevant content and iterate on it in collaboration with a content editor.

I care about writing content that is easy to understand, easy to read quickly and remember - and resonates with the users.

I produce pixel perfect mockups, and deliver production ready UI components. I've also done basic branding and illustrations. I use a range of tools including Sketch, Illustrator, Photoshop, Procreate, Zeplin and Abstract.

Code & Prototyping

I turn wireframes or mockups into rich, fully fledged, clickable prototypes. I do everything from HTML, CSS and Javascript to PHP and SQL. I also supplement wireframes and specs with code snippets.

I've also built entire websites such as a complete search interface for FAST (now Microsoft) and Happy Curve. In the old days I used to build desktop software and apps - my web publishing software StepZilla had over 100 000 users.
