About Me

Hi! I’m Can. I’m a child of the 90s who grew up trying to communicate with extraterrestrial civilizations, trying to figure out time travel and teleportation, and designing solar-powered firefighting drones, Hyperloop style maglev trains, and smart car user interfaces. Years later, as a product designer, I am trying to stay as creative and forward-thinking as my childhood self.

Since completing my two-year MSc degree in IT Product Design at SDU Denmark, I have worked as a UX strategist, UX team of one, product designer/manager hybrid, and product designer. I’ve worked on complex Web apps for HR, workforce scheduling, compensation reviews, talent management, student assessments, and more. I’ve helped ship products and features to thousands of users and hundreds of clients, by solving complex problems day to day. Meanwhile, I've also done several freelance web design jobs as well as taking part in online co-innovation projects from which I won several awards.

My unique education and career track demonstrate my willingness and capability to take on new challenges, and I am more than open to new ones.
