Hello! I’m a multidisciplinary design professional with background in digital marketing. I made the transition to UX to create positive experiences that satisfy both users’ needs and business goals. I’m determined, hard working and a strong believer in lifelong learning.
My current favourite UX book: "Don't Make Me Think" by Steve Krug.
I was born in Russia, grew up in England and moved to Canada in 2018. I speak four languages, dabble in photography and illustration.
Ask me anything else!

Maria is a highly capable digital marketing and UX design expert. I was particularly impressed by the following during our time working together: how quickly she got to grips with the wide variety of complex business challenges presented to her; her calm, intelligent and measured approach; the speed and quality of her delivery; the depth of her insight; her capacity - which is really quite extraordinary.
Maria can be relied upon to deliver every time and will be an invaluable asset to any organisation benefiting from her talents.
