About Me
I am a Sr. UI/UX designer in a mobile game company in Silicon Valley and I'm responsible for user research, wireframe, product design and art assets for multiple games. I have always been highly interested in drawing and reading fiction stories since my childhood. I was born and raised in the countryside of my native country, so my creative ideas mainly come from nature. I love to use natural elements for my creative characters like plants and animals. I have a MFA in New Media Computer Art from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Because of my graduate background I also work on graphic design projects.
In my most recent job, my focus is on user experience and visual design for mobile games. I like to create interesting elements, using soft colors and exquisite compositions. I usually get inspiration from nature and my surroundings. For me, design is not just my job, it's my passion.
