Hi, I'm Veronika.
I grew up in a big Russian city, Nizhny Novgorod, accustomed to its busy lifestyle and immersed in its rich history and culture. Moving to Oregon right after I turned 18 was a life-changing experience, as I got to explore the West Coast's laid-back atmosphere fused with overcast skies and endless creativity. Oregon's freedom-filled, peculiar culture deeply inspired me throughout my life as an advertising student at the University of Oregon. I have always loved writing and creating, but having a highly analytical mindset has forced me to move beyond storytelling into a more practical field of UX, where I could have a physical impact on products, making them more enjoyable and easy for people to use. With that desire in mind, I found myself getting a Master's degree in User-Centered Design and Engineering at the University of Washington, where I get to work with awesome experienced classmates, improve clients' products, and do research on emerging issues in technology.
