Whenever people ask me what do I do for a living, I always give the same answer. I say I'm a designer. It doesn't matter that my current job title is Design Director – I think it's all about being a designer first. It starts with the craft, and then everything follows. I love the process.

A big chunk of my work is to manage and build successful design teams. I feel very comfortable working alongside designers and creatives to mentor and help their professional growth through one on one meetings and career management.

I am now working at DK&A, one of the best product houses in Finland. Before that, I was at Mirum managing talents ranging from Associate Visual Designers to Senior Video Editors for clients like Finnair and Nokia.

Previously, I was in charge of the Design team at Huge, based in Colombia. I was designing and overseeing design deliverables to clients such as Google, FCA, Randstad, and Nike.

To make it even more interesting, we designed some swag in the form of t-shirts and stickers and sent them over mail to every single person in the company  in these nifty envelopes
