I help companies go from idea to MVP — fast.

Vozdra! I’m a maker of digital products usually found in Australia, currently in Europe. I've worked as UXer for Envato and as lead instructor teaching General Assembly's UX Design Immersive. I built Twipsum, shipped code to Envato Market, a site generating hundreds of millions of dollars, and am in the midst of building Minihero, a site designed to help people help one another. In my spare time, I'm into travel photography, and drone videography.

Catch me on Twitter, LinkedIn, Medium and Github.

How I built Twipsum in two weeks

I built a Twitter to lorem ipsum generator to play with Node.js. Twipsum grabs a Twitter user's tweets, say @realdonaldtrump, then cleans up some of the text before returning 'lorem ipsum' text from the user's tweets.

The story behind the making of Twipsum got featured on Hacker Noon.

Meet Minihero,
an app helping people help one another

Minihero is the result of me being annoyed with how much overhead there is in casual volunteering.

I pitched the idea on Kickstarter, but because of poor marketing it didn't get funded.

Three intense months of teaching UX Design at General Assembly

I was the lead instructor at GA in Melbourne, and it was my job to take people with little UX knowledge and make them job-ready within three months. 17 out of a total 18 students landed work within six months of graduating. I'm very proud of my UX ducklings. 😊

Looking back at 2.5 years at Envato

Renowned as an industry leader in Agile software development, with some of the best Ruby devs in Australia, and a strong community of millions of users all over the world, Envato was the spark to my career.

My biggest success story was helping spike revenue on a product by 4000% as the result of a two-week design sprint.
