CO-FOUNDER & LEAD DESIGNER

Leezair

2014 – 2017

I led the design for the second startup I co-founded in my career, Leezair.com a tourist activity marketplace. We grew from 3 people to 15, raised $1 million in funding, and launched a marketplace on the web, iOS and Android with thousands of activities available. I learnt a lot as an entrepreneur, strategist, designer and manager. My respect for understanding the customer's needs and user research in general, vastly increased.
