Take a breather and come back when your sitting down at your computer

You are most likely on the GO right now, clicking on a this little blue link to view my folio site online. I am humbled that your are here. But perhaps, work can wait until you are back in your office chair and able view the site on a bigger screen? Put the phone down and take a break.

I wish you a safe and lovely day in these trying times.


(Likewise, i prioritized for the moment that mobile and small tablet was not most important at status quo. Over other more critical tasks, as i am working on stuff to help the many full-time motorhomes owner during COV19 pandemic which have no place to go as all campsites got shut down)

Digital product designer

I design user experiences and interfaces for Sass, Apps and connected hardware.

I primarily working with startups and audacious projects as I connect well with starters. Who often need a designer who is also technical minded, can be part product owner and able to articulate design solutions in their language. Especially how design relate to business, timelines and their strategic goals.
