I’m an AR/VR experience designer bringing ideas to life through prototyping, experience design, and usability testing. As an avid VR community member, I bring ideas to life to showcase what VR is capable of, whether it’s to improve someone’s physical or cognitive abilities.

I’m passionate about creating intuitive designs for AR/VR. I’ve spent the last three years developing my skills in order to make the leap from architect to designer. I hold a Masters in Architecture. This helps me to identify the right problems by observing human behavior and creating solutions that can delight and make a difference to the users.

Although I love my current role as a freelancer/artist and creator, I feel I’m now ready for a more challenging assignment and this position really excites me. This is a great opportunity to apply my design and creative problem-solving skills at an innovative software company.

Currently I’m developing a VR training: Earthquake Simulation

VR Training: Earthquake Simulation | Design Concept

Product Design | Researcher | Prototype | July 2019 - Present

Prepare people to make the right decisions under stress during an earthquake.To get the best learning outcome, you need to get enough reps. More repetitions creates new, fairly strengthened connections in the brain that turn into a fixed action that will work at the right time.Conducting many live trainings is extremely costly. VR gives people the opportunity to repeat the practice as much as necessary, almost for free.
