Learn About Me
I was born in Uzbekistan so I'd say I've seen the world through a different lens than some of my peers. I spent a large part of my life in the Chicagoland area. Being a bit different has not distracted me from falling in love with the modern pop culture
like Game Of Thrones, Instagram-friendly food, and trendy gadgets.
My curiosity for all things technology drives my craving to solve complex problems with a human-centered design approach. Some of my tools of success are a notepad, a laptop, Sketch, and Spotify. I am always looking out for new music, new food, and new running paths. In addition to this, I love video games because at the end of the day, solving puzzles and rescuing the princess from the castle is not much different than solving problems through a human-centered design approach, just with more direction.
I studied Psychology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After undergrad, I shifted my focus to Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Michigan's School of Information.
