I have a few passions in my life: my wife, rowing, and design. I guess it will be hard to share my passion for rowing here, and probably even harder for my wife, but I believe I can make you love the philosophy and practice of design as much as me.
My background is mostly in web development and UI/UX design. I learned the hard skills of product development by myself before getting my degree in HCI and working as a developer and then a designer.
My definition of design is one of a hub that bridges fields, peoples, and times, in order to produce solutions to complex challenges. Design is an ecosystem.
