Speaking and writing

I speak at conferences

I give talks and workshokshops and speak at meetups all over the world. I speak about UX process, mobile design, perceived performance and more. I see CSS and HTML as design tools and want to fill the gap between designers and developers. You can check all my slides on My Speakerdeck.
