Who am I?

The workfield of UX design has been expanding into a more necessary, interesting and playful business. Options seem more limitless and I am interested in searching for the boundaries and possibilities with the newest arrivals of smart devices. My love for gadgetry developed when I was a 10 year old boy after I got my first gameboy. I remember the countless hours I could get lost in this those animated worlds. The fact that those simple machines with only a few buttons were so popular still astonishes me. Our new toys are the rapidly expanding world of smart phones and tablets, now owned by almost every member in society. I wish to be part of this growing market and to develop myself and the software to a more pleasurable and easy experience.
