Projects

Since mid 2020, I’ve focused my energy on

. Before joining the founding team to lead design, I worked on various personal projects, freelance work, and corporate/startup jobs.

Fun Projects - Design, Code, From Start to Finish

As someone with a strong interest in crafts, I believe artistry and mastery often come from building.
