Product Designer

Masha Safina

Chicago, IL

Hello!

I'm Masha and I love pugs.

I design web products. I front-end code. I secretly love Project Managing tools.

I think of a Product as of a single breathing ideally organism determining its weak spots and working out ways to improve it based on available resources. I'm eager to contribute utilizing everything I have on my "tool" "belt" and always learning new things.

I love working with passionate individuals (compiled in teams or else).
