I'm a high level thinker with a knack for strategy, but I also love to get into the details of IA and user research. Count on me to reword survey questions, obsess over taxonomy terms, and simultaneously have a grasp on the overall goals. I'm a strong collaborator as I believe interdisciplinary work is the key to creative problem solving. I practice human centered and holistic design where I bring my creativity and curiosity to push boundaries, always ask why, and never settle.

In my free time, you'll find me painting, practicing yoga, riding a motorcycle, or taking photographs. 

I'm currently a freelancer open to projects. Feel free to contact me for collaboration inquiries & questions: m.chekmarova@gmail.com

My Instagram feed is an okay indicator of where I am in the world and a great indicator of what I'm amazed by.
