Learn About Me

I've been excited about making things from a very young age from my learning how to make my own trading card game all the way to making fan art for Pokemon. My family emigrated to the United States from Uzbekistan when I was 6 years old. I've spent the bulk of my life following the digital & technological space evolve from the early 2000s to today. I've been primarily interested in the intersection of play & technology and how we can use both areas to improve perception and engagement. During my free time, I enjoy taking on challenges as learning how to design & develop for Virtual Reality, augment reality & making games. My philosophy stays true today as it did when I first moved to this country, stay curious, and experiment. Some things that keep me busy outside of design and tech include learning about new music, TV shows & food to try.
