I was born and raised in Poland. When I was 20, I took a leap of faith and moved to the United States to broaden my horizons, educate myself, and see the world. I lived in Michigan, Texas, and now New York. When I am not working, you will find me playing fetch with my dog Kayah or exploring the city of New York.
I am very passionate about helping my clients get desired results for their companies by providing creative and innovative design solutions. I am fluent in all aspects of creative process, knowledgeable in industry best practices, and not afraid to take risks in creative direction. My experience includes professional presentation design, data visualization, content creation, leading and executing creative projects, managing creative teams and vendors, branding, website development, and photography.
My design style is minimalistic, modern, and clean as I understand the importance of having even the most complex content be easy to understand. I am extremely organized with a critical eye for detail with an emphasis on accuracy and quality.
I possess strong organizational, analytical, and time management skills. I am comfortable working in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment with focus on exceeding expectations and delivering high quality work. I strive to create and manage strong relationships with my clients and team members.
I believe in continuing education to grow my expertise. I take time to attend workshops, networking events, get certifications, take online tutorials to add value to my clients.
