“Software should behave like a considerate human being.”

About Me

I’m a self-taught product designer with a diverse background in business, finance, engineering, and design. I started off with a few courses in Human Factors in school. Once I entered the world of tech, I fell in love with product design for its holistic approach to meet both function and form.

To me, good product design is user-centered design. It is solving users’ needs and delighting them with a killer experience.
