A Home for All My Things

Design Portfolio

I'm a UX and product designer by trade. I like to learn about people's problems and figure out how to solve them. I love creative and product strategy. I enjoy making things exist when they didn't before, or at least making them exist better.

I'm also a non-practicing artist, meaning I don't get around to it much. But I love drawing, painting, and illustration. Weird faces are my favorite subject. Weird things in general.

About Me, In General

I was born in Kiev, Ukraine and grew up in Brooklyn. I majored in Creative Writing and sometimes still write. I have a gray cat named Myshkin. Trying to find the time to teach myself Unity and Spanish. I'm a dabbler and there's always something new to try. Some of my interests that come up most often are Buddhism, the nature of reality, dumb internet culture, immigrant narratives, and ASMR.
