Hey, I’m Elvis. I love solving complex product challenges.

Currently I'm working as a Lead Product Designer at Preply  where I help shape the future of the effective learning for more than 1 million students.

I’m passionate about people. I find  joy when products  that I build are enjoyed by customers or when I see my team members growing and learning.

When I'm not at work, I am probably dancing, exploring new food or watching The Wire once again.
