Figma Community Award

During the Figma Config event in May 2002, I had the honor of three of my resources nominated in two categories. I'm delighted to have won the Figma Community Award in the 'Favorite Educational Resources' category, humbled by the recognition.

Speaking Engagements

I've been privileged to share my insights on esteemed platforms such as Figma Config 2023, Designdicate, PR Arena, HTEC meetup, Symphony meetup, Web Summit-Lisbon 2023, and more. My talks revolve around design strategies, leadership, and the importance of community in fostering innovation.
