UX Practice Director

Karol Czyrka

I am 15+ year veteran of designing user experiences. I started my career in the field of interior design and architecture and have transferred my skills to the digital space.

My philosophy is that I am the advocate for the user, and I need to make sure their goals have equal voice at the table with technology and business goals.

Photography plays a role in both of these and I have plans to create my own cookbook soon. Last, but not least, my personal philosophy is that a new pair of shoes is always a good idea.
