Hi There!

I'm Darya. And this is the page where I brag about myself. Okay, here ya go...

I'm an experienced user experience designer (7 + years) with front-end coding skills. I create highly interactive apps with users in mind. Oh, did I mention? I love data! I love organizing lots of data into visualizations and interactions that users understand (my passion). My background is in psychology (I have a BS in it) and in studio art/graphic design (I have a BA in that). And I hold a Master's degree in Information Management from UC Berkeley (that's where I learned more about coding, HCI, and entrepreneurship). But the truth be told, my experience comes from hard work and practice. I started out as a visual designer and through the years moved closer to interaction design and information architecture.

I think Art + Psychology + Technology = makes a pretty good user experience, and that's what I bring to the table. If you would like to learn more, contact me here. Hope to hear from you!
