About me

I consider myself an organized and creative designer, who can work well with his clients or other team members. I've spent the last decade both working as a freelancer - handling tasks on my own, and also as a member of a team - following marketing managers, leading and supervising other designers.

I’m a geeky but also a sporty individual. I enjoy swimming and taking part of long bike tours. Family and a stable healthy lifestyle is really important for me. I recently started diving into photography as a hobby, I find taking portrait pictures really interesting.
