Go to Lead Game designer

Lead Game designer

Mainly working for Ubisoft, I led successful game design teams, designed AAA games from conception to release on 7 different plateforms, developed Live plans drastically increasing ARM and created worldwide design training in Game Design and Game UX.

Go to User Experience Expert

User Experience Expert

Before entering the video game industry, I developed as a Digital Designer focused on user experience. I worked for industrial design studios, architecture agencies, museums and public mobile companies, helping them to focus the design on its human side.

Go to Computer Science Engineer

Computer Science Engineer

Having a Master degree in Computer Science engineering, I have always been able to be very hands-on, design realistic and cost-efficient solutions while pushing for innovation and support production teams from diverse horizons .

Talents

I also make the best crepes ever!
Players Focused Common Sense

Currently working in Ubisoft Sofia, Bulgaria, as Lead Game Designer, for more than 2 years on Assassin's Creed Origins.

Having worked in so many fields and for such great projects and teams allowed me to really become a versatile designer. My works asked me to be a programmer, a 3D modeler, a graphical designer, a UX expert, a game designer etc. That is what the projects presented here try to picture.

Following the - Form follows Function - mantra, I have been putting the players at the center of my design process, through studies (behavior, demographics...) and playtests (AB testing, focus groups...).

Finally, having lived and work abroad for 3 years, from Bulgaria, to Japan, Australia and Spain, I believe that I became a very open-minded person, able to adapt fast in any environment or project.
