I started designing simple web pages for the fun of it back in college, when I thought being a Russian major was going to be my main gig. Turns, out the creative and logic side of my brain really wanted to play, so the excitement of crafting experiences for users all over the world was just too much to shy away from. Shifting my focus in college I dug my heels in. Before and after graduating I was able to work for major brands such as Coca-Cola, Chase, BCBS, Yamaha and so much more as I've honed my chops, and worked my way up the ladder. Currently operating in a creative leadership role, I mentor Jr. UX/UI designers as we craft new and innovative user experiences for today and tomorrow's applications.
