Values

I am an introverted extrovert, confident in my abilities and assertive in decisions. I love educating myself on healthy foods and fermentation, making cook books and cooking; appreciating beauty in nature, science and everyday experience; playing pétanque, watching movies, birds, traveling and more, but most importantly, connecting to people.

I believe that research is a foundation of every strong project. I am a multidisciplinary designer, trained to work in various fields: communication, product, speculative design. Product management is the key element of my work because a product is never just a product, but a solution for human needs.

While creating projects I am most interested in human experience, interaction with my design and perception of the story around it. I take work very seriously, I am attentive to details and able to bring projects to life by detailed planning and producing either myself or with close monitoring of outsource facilities.

I am able to work individually and be part of a team: I can take responsibility for decision making, but also I am a good listener, focusing on the result instead of an ego. In my opinion successful results require healthy environment in teams, where members are encouraged to ask questions and are not afraid to express an opinion that is different.

My sphere of interest lies in new developments, technologies and society. I am constantly learning: the range spreads from new software in management to negotiation, from science of well-being to transmedia storytelling. I think it is the only way to come up with fresh ideas and to be relevant.
