About me

Stemming from my engineering background, I'm a UI/UX designer, who values using precision and meticulousness to create software UI that is highly functional and convenient. Self-sufficient and methodical, I am a strategic thinker and active collaborator, focusing on delivering extensible solutions. Leveraging my ability to structure information and translate it into a visual form, I can create a consistent UI style in multiple complex projects simultaneously. I pride myself on creating a design system for RecMan software products that allows to enhance the efficiency of design-development processes and to positively impact the customer experience of over 1000 companies that use our software.
