I have created my first website in 1998, worked in various web design agencies, grounded my own, emigrated, learned German, found a new job, coded a CRM system, experimented with game design, traveled over the world as an SAP consultant, survived plenty of escalations and “war rooms” in customer support, fixed bugs and coded my own, and, finally, found my way back to design in 2012.
I love exploring and learning new things, leading design teams, creating design visions, turning them into design systems, and, most importantly, staying with product teams to make it real. I like getting things done, that's why my design engagement doesn’t finish with a handover of some Figma, Sketch, or PSD files. It continues with implementation, survives critique from developers, product owners, and customers, undergoes validation, and adopts to deadlines. Everything with an ultimate goal – to deliver products with the best possible experience. The real highlight for me is to see the designs in production and continuously improve them over time.
In my spare time, I am a happy father, lucky fisherman, and passionate chess player.
