A design+code guy? Awesome.
I respect intelligence, and praise beauty. Each and every project, I look for the perfect combination of them. It's my way to deal with form and function.
On an average day, I read design and tech news, and explore fresh products. My favorite and the most useless hobby is to build my own fantasy products that will only live in my localhost.
