I'm offering

Senior UX Designer - Contracting VR / AR / AI / XR.

As an senior user experience consultant, I am passionate about transforming complex ambiguous ideas into elegant, value-led designs.

After working around the world for four years, I now reside in London. For the last couple of years, my focus has been on design for Mixed, Virtual, and Augmented Realities, as well as Artificial Intelligence and Mobile (both Native and Web). I have a strong background in 3D/2D animation, interactions, and user experience. Which, means that I understand 3D space, how the user will interact in 3D, and how to create an innovative and exciting experience for the user.

As an employee, I am hardworking and ambitious and motivated by new challenges. I am passionate, extremely focused, and a committed team player, but most of all I love what I do and have lots to offer.
