Eric Taylor

Architect @ EY Design Studio PHL, USA

Boris is a multi-talented UX designer and UI developer who is always wonderful to work with. I had the opportunity to work with Boris on a green-field project where he was responsible for coming up with several design alternatives, presenting to and negotiating with the client to arrive at the best option, and he was the sole UX developer to create the front-end markup and styles. His dedication and hard work combined with his talents for design and development are a huge reason this project was delivered successfully and on-time.

Interests

Apart from being an UI/UX Developer, I have interest in Cybersecurity and Digital Forensics, entrepreneurship and psychology. I'm very passionate about electric guitar and rock music, I have a small collection of Ibanez guitars and few custom handmade guitars (made by luthier Zoran Simic, aka ZS guitars).

I love sports and fitness. During the warmer months, I enjoy swimming, mountain biking, playing basketball and fishing and in winters I'm mostly playing my guitars, but I have a strong will to learn to ski and snowboard.

I follow a small number of sci-fi and crime genre movies/TV shows in my leisure time, while most of my free time is spent exploring the latest technology advancements in the front-end web/UI/UX world.
