How did you get to where you are today in the design world?

Passion, guts and a habit to never surrender for any problems.

What is your best strategy for tackling a project or challenge?

Read the specifications carefully and try to find the heart of the challenge, meaning the main thing to win or to conquer the project. This will help to complete the project in a very short period of time with an effective solution.

How do you keep up with current trends and advances in design?

I always browse different content in Dribbble and in Behance.

What are you most looking forward to for the TCO Finals?

To meet the design God Adam Morehead (adroc) and all finalist.
