I have been in the industry for over 14 years. Web design was my primary activity in my early professional days. During college, I started engaging in brand identity design, as well as practicing detailed UI design. My education at the school of business gave me insight into marketing and advertising, where I was employed for a while as a producer and designer. While working on fast-paced campaigns, user experience conversations became an important part of my everyday routine. This lead me to join a NYC based startup which was solving the problem of buying and selling products online. Currently, I work for Medstro, the best place for physicians and med students on the web. I am the designer-in-chief, proud owner of a cat and I quite enjoy calligraphy and pixel art.
