I am a realistic dreamer - both a student of a combined form of IT and a full-time UX designer.

I see my future in creating amazing apps that can make people's lives easier and want to do my job always more than 100%. I am eager to improve my design skills and learn a lot about new technologies. It is not just a job but also a hobby to me. (E.g. I was one of the Glass Explorers in Czech Republic. :) ) Besides that I also enjoy being a part of a team and networking, so I participated on different events done by GUG.cz, where I was a volunteering organizator. Currently, I started a new project Chef Arena as a Producer.

I am considered a reliable, goal-oriented, and initiative person and most importantly I just love to gain new experience and learn from and with others. What I am looking for in a job is to become a part of a friendly team, share our knowledge, and help the brand grow and flourish - making the team effort matter.

In case you consider my CV interesting, I am open to a conversation over the phone or an interview. You can catch me on contact information listed above.
