What’s your favorite thing about your current job?

I really like to code, and thats why I chose this career. I like to learn new stuff, and I just feel that in coding there are so much more to learn! Especially if you are new to it as I am! And it's not just coding, if you think about UI and UX design, then there is much more. Then gotta think about font size, line height, colors and more. And in UX design you have to know alot about user behavior!

When did you start with graphic design?

I think I started when I was around 15 years old, I downloaded a "jack sparrow" version of Photoshop, working with photoshop for a quiet while. When I began my education I learned a lot more about all the other Adobe programms. Not long after that, I got introduced to HTML and CSS, and thought that it was interesting and I wanted to learn more about to. And since then I have pretty much worked with it since, but now I have upgraded to PHP and SASS and there is a lot to learn.

Favorite things to do when your not working?

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy running, I run everyday, the point behind that is not to run the longest, but the commitment to do it everyday is the important thing. When I have more time to kill I really enjoy to just chill out in front of the pc and play some video games with my childhood friends.

What do you wish you were better at?

I wish I were better at making sketches before I make my designs. Before I even begin, I have a basic idea how I would like to look, so, from that I usually look for inspiration on dribbble etc. After I have been looking for inspiration, I just begin coding. And basically just do it "on the road" ish style.

What is your dream?

My dream is to one day become a popular freelancer. My main goal is to focus on UI and UX design, that is simply because I really enjoy to code and make websites. When you are making a new website, it's not all about the "design", you have to know what your visitors want to know on you are website, and then make the whole design from what you know the visitors are looking for.
