Primary Skills

Creative Mindset
 + 
Technical skills

I look for inspiration in art, movies, and the newest design trends from the best artists in their field to improve my creativity. After research and setting goals for future design, I work on several ideas to choose from. The most challenging ones help me to master my hard skills and try new technics.

My previous photography experience helped me to develop a keen eye for aesthetics and details which is necessary for Graphic Design.

Empathy
 + 
Communication

Almost 5 years of experience in the psychology field has given me a strong knowledge of the human mindset and behavior.  Empathy helps me in a better understanding of user/client needs, what they are looking for or the problem they are trying to solve, what feelings and emotions the design should evoke for the best efficiency. 

Being a part of a creative team means to me being able to discuss and collaborate with other professionals to create a great final product. 

Fast Learning
 + 
Organizational Skills

As a UI/UX designer, I eager to learn quickly. The most efficient way for me to do it is to work on live projects with more experienced professionals and team members, to solve new problems, and to meet challenges. I am looking for new job opportunities. Even if I am still improving my expertise, my professional attitude and enthusiasm might be a good investment in every creative team.
Being a creative person, it is not easy to keep everything in order but working on real projects taught me to be efficient and save a bunch of time being organized.
