About me

Who am I without my cats?

The present

I left Kiron with a broken heart. It was a very tough decision to make, but I have to move on in search for a new experience. So far I have been a lone UX ranger. Now I feel 'tis time for me to be part of a design team. I want to experience the grass on the other side and grow with it.

Why UX

Be it at a dinner table, at my birthday party, when I am designing, or when I dream about opening my own café to serve good coffee in Germany, I've come to realise that what I want is for other people to have a good experience. It is important for me.
