Some of my talks from conferences, design courses and universities:

Beliefs

I believe that great design is achieved at the intersection of data and gut instinct. I like working in environments that values both worlds, where people have strong opinions, weakly held.

Data + Instinct

I'm a generalist:

  • designer – I enjoy solving problems by exploration, sketching and iteration
  • researcher – I conduct surveys, usability tests and interviews
  • analyst – I spend a good part of my time in analytics and spreadsheets
  • copywriter – I believe that words are more powerful than pixels
  • psychologist – I craft products that give meaning
