Thank you for stopping by. You might be wondering who this lady-on-sprinkles is and how did you end up here so, without further due, here's a summary of how you and I made it to this point.
Back in 2014, I paused my career as a Software Developer/Test engineer and went off to pursue my master's degree in Information Technology with a focus in User Experience. Packed my bags and moved to a little city called Tampere, up north close to where Santa Claus lives. With a lot of enthusiasm, I formally started my path on HCI and quickly realized that there was a lot more to it than just aesthetics.
The pervasive characteristic of the field intrigued me and allowed me to enjoy exploring very different paths that have the same goal: make things better. The projects I've participated in range from software engineering and Open Source for the Open Design Foundation to social entrepreneurship and systems thinking at the Un-School of Disruptive Design in their NYC edition, to product design and Agile methodologies for Futurice and Kesko. Ultimately, for my thesis work, I decided to combine my knowledge and put my skills into use to explore a different branch: HCI for development.
Connecting dots is my passion, but most of all, creating something that improves people's lives (and make it fun along the way whenever it's possible). I think this is where WE meet and I look forward to getting in touch real soon.
