Creating delightful digital experiences to improve people's lives.

I am a digital product designer based in Amsterdam, half Greek and half Italian. I have 7 years of experience in the digital design field. During these last years, I have been focusing on digital products in order to create long term user experiences; Measuring & testing them, learning from it and improving them even more.
Coming from a digital design background I had the opportunity to explore and experiment with a mix of different projects; From large companies (with more than 40 designers) to small startups.
