About Me.

Making an impact and improving lives through better design. 

SHORT STORY OF ME

After I finished studying IT in college I jumped straight into creative work, making websites for friends and family. Started a small agency in Budapest and I immediately found my passion, using design to solve problems and adding value to people’s lives. Became a worldwide member of the IBM Entrepreneur Program in recognition of design, and user experience work on a project that simplified education for elementary schools through an online learning and social media platform.

In 2014 I became a finalist in the Bridge Budapest Fellowship Program, a contest held by the founders of Prezi, Ustream, LogMeIn and Seagate to bring talented people to the UK and US. Later that year, I moved to London to gain experience working in design, and became UX Lead at a market leading Fintech provider. Since then I travelled the world and delivered a magnitude of product designs, digital transformation and innovation projects, design sprints, and evangelised design thinking as part of my mission to impact lives through human-centred design and to make complexities simple.

I love travelling, gaming, playing the guitar, painting scale models and mixing cocktails. After a decade in design, I still love that I get to learn new things about the users and learn something new every day.
