"PREDICTING FUTURE"

Currently,  interning @Spotify, Stockholm.

I have always been a real life gamer and passionate about human beings that’s why I have chosen to be an Interaction Designer. I simply am curious about human beings and their relations between each other and the world and I have strong social skills which help me empathy with human beings better and find the core of their behaviours and motivations. Meeting people, getting to know, finding links among their relations and getting the essence of their behaviours is like a puzzle and a delightful challenge that I am happy to take.

User research and UX is what I would like to work on and also I have a passion for sound design and audio interfaces which is not fully explored yet and have a great potential to from kitchen appliances to medical and also car industry and especially gaming in order to improve user experiences. I am also a drummer, choir singer, in short sound explorer so to speak as a cherry on top.
