Who am I?

Hi

I’m a 33 year old Product Designer, moved to Dubai in 2013. I have 13 years of experience in the design industry within B2C, B2B products in Telco, e-commerce, marketplace, fin-tech, hospitality and loyalty sector.

I lead and mentor a high-performance team, fostering a positive and collaborative environment. I manage squads, timelines, and budgets and communicate with stakeholders for successful outcomes.

I bring a blend of Product Design and Research expertise to help teams achieve business goals and deliver high-quality products. I also have a strong understanding of the development process and work closely with cross-functional teams.

Leading with Design

I truly believe that through design thinking and empathy, we can change lives. I assume the responsibility of championing our work across the company by actively engaging with cross-functional teams. I showcase innovative product experiences and explain our design processes. My mission is to organically instill a design-thinking approach, influencing teams to embrace human-centric methodologies.
