Research led graphic designer based in New York. Practiced versatile projects in the field of visual communication. From the execution of concept-driven, commissioned projects to self-initiated studies.
While I enjoy being curious, meticulously detailed, playful and an intuition-driven designer, I'm drawn to design that's led by content and not designers; a design that has Relevant longevity and purpose.

A MEMO FOR 2061

There is a magic moment, one we don’t acknowledge much.
its the second before we have the correct answer, the second
before we see the solution clearly, its the second where our
body is full of adrenaline. At that specific moment were in the
grey zone. I once thought that I should know everything in advanced,
I should see clearly what the future will bring me but forgot that
creativity is driven from those grey zone. A memo for 2061 is a
book I created in order to remind myself how beautiful these
moments are, 200 pages of black and white not-focused pictures
which I took over the past 10 years, these photos were kept in a
folder named: “not good/not focused/trash” etc. accompanied with the 
short essay “The Aesthetics of Chance” by Margaret Iverson, this will
be the best reminder for me to search for these grey zones and not
be compromised or mislead by the beauty of the determinism of black and white.
