Educated in visual design skills as well as critical thinking, I like designing as close as possible to actual user needs and behaviors. Currently I work in Italy and am always open to interesting freelance projects.
In my work, I don't like getting pinned down to "pixels and gestures". I love UX design for being more than just the visual and interactive part. I love it because I like thinking about different aspects of a solution, because I have a passion for satisfying needs and I take pride in creating memorable experiences.

For me, UX is the bigger picture. It can be anything, from the emotions felt when waiting in front of a painfully slow coffee machine to how positive a "huh!" can sound when trying out a new app.
My work shows how much I care for research, needs & behaviors, mental models and the psychological aspects of design.
When I design interfaces, I always try to focus on what is the purpose of the service. What information needs to get to the user at what point of time and how is that done best? Good interactions are dependent on the UX Design (and the other way around.) Additionally I try to shape new behaviors through IxD.
…and of course everything needs to look nice in the end; the look and feel can eventually still bring down the whole service.
So, whatever I design, I'm trying to always mind the audience and try to sooth it through nice shapes and colors ;)
I am proud of my analytic capabilities which are based on listening, understanding, (mental) flexibility and openness.
I'm good at critical thinking, including high level thinking, understanding of technical and other disciplines, empathy, etc.
Both, my aesthetic sensitivity as well as my love for details reflects throughout all my work.
Development of a system enabling people to do online banking the way they'd like to. Contextual UX research and iterative UX/UI design built a solid service with personalized user experiences.
A bracelet that intelligently monitors the wearer's medical status, to preemptively detect anomalies. It can work together with healthcare services to improve emergency response times or simply better inform a regular checkup.
This used to be my old portfolio with (mostly) my university projects. Although it was the first webpage I ever created, and despite it's bugs, it was a labor of love that evidences my steep learning curve.
