UX Designer

My first attempt of completing a bachelor’s was in Computer Science. I realized I wanted to work more with graphics and other design related topics. I continued studying UX Design and meanwhile I am teaching myself the ropes of graphic design as well.

Video-editer

When I was twelve years old I learned myself to edit videos with about a million different one-month-tutorial programs. Eventually it turned into a job working Animal Rights editing undercover footage. I also take requests to edit birthday or vacation videos.

Photographer

I always had the tendency to document everything I was doing (to the annoyance of everyone around me). So I saved up for a Nikon and started taking pictures for friends and family as well.

Artist

Expressing myself in visual creative ways was always big part of my life and drawing is still my most favorite hobby.
