Data-driven, lean, rapid iterative design process...

I am a designer and a researcher. I have worked with multiple startups in their early stage, created prototypes to enable startup founders to pitch ideas to investors.

The design approach I prefer is Lean UX in an Agile development environment. I focus on understanding the "why" and working my way up to create a user-centered design. I believe rapid iterative design process plays an essential role in creating a refined product in terms of functionality, visual design, and the overall user experience. I am passionate about design, technology, and startups.
