TELL ME A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT YOURSELF


Well, this is awkward, talking about oneself always is, but here we go.

3+ years of experience working on the digital product scene. From small projects to "500 startups" backed companies.

Obsessed with computers and design, since 1993 (disclaimer: not like since a newborn, but you get it right?). I learned to use my first design software (Corel draw) in elementary through my sister's computer class notes.

Majored in computer science, which gave me a “hybrid” perspective about designing digital products. I thrive on creating simple, clean and enjoyable products.

Everything I know about design has come from collaboration, curiosity, self-determination and the conviction that creating user first products is the only way that digital products should be designed.

I truly love collaborating in teams and enjoy all the process of designing a product from the brainstorm to the little micro-interactions.

Most of my experience has been working with early-stage startups, where I have been able to teach the value of good design, empowering them through design and in the meanwhile making sense of the mess.

And I think that's, that's it folks.
