Designing, surfing, hiking, travel, photography & video
These are just some of my passions and interests that help keep me creative and motivated.
I’m currently working in financial tech here in the Dubai helping regional banks scale and global banks diversify. Working in a city with a rapidly growing financial sector yields a lot of opportunities to create and re-think some compelling concepts and ideas.
I share my passion for design with my interests, such as travel or being in the ocean – I feel it keeps my creativity flowing. Discovering new ideas and perspectives on problems really takes a healthy dose of fear and adrenaline. I thrive when being outside my comfort zone and for me – it’s only helped me grow more as a designer and a person.
