I’m a UX Designer with background in architecture. I got interested in UX Design to solve new design challenges, getting involved in how people interact with digital products. I strongly believe the digital products are our day to day tools, so we are shaping the design of the future.

What is one thing people should know about you? I’m always trying to explore my artistic side. I’ve done oil pantings, digital art, watercolor and 3D rendering. A new design challenge appears, you can count me in!

What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you? I once lived in Quebec to practice my French. I have only been studying for a year, but it was a fulfilling experience to get to practice a new language in another country. I would definitely do it again.

What are you most passionate about professionally? Designing for the future. Knowing the products we are making now can work for now and future generations.

What are you most passionate about personally? I’m passionate about learning something new every day. It doesn’t have to be on some topic in particular, but to get to experience something new. I get really excited when someone gets to teach something they are passionate about.

What is your favorite place to travel to and why? Japan. Two years ago I traveled there with my sister. I would love to repeat that trip, since it was an extraordinary way to bond with her and we both love asian food. Also, it was such a nice trip to analyze the esthetic of the Japanese cities.

What is your favorite way to pursue balance in your life? Through meditation.
