I am still learning

As a design lead at SEB Baltic, I use my business knowledge and design skills to find opportunities and create design strategies for my organization. In addition to my job, I like to share my experiences with other design leads and help them establish design processes and teams in their companies.

When not working, I speak and write about design careers, leadership in design, and self-development. I base much of my content on the lessons and experiences I’ve gained throughout my career. I’m always available to mentor students.
