I got the opportunity to work in digital products even before I got my bachelor’s degree in design 11 years ago and then I started my journey to discover UX and I learn how putting the user needs fronted-center made a huge difference for the people that use your product, ever since I’m convinced that great user experiences are along with successful products and behind every great product is teamwork that makes everything happen that’s why I really enjoy working with people in different walks in live and different cultures, every new project has a unique story to share and many learnings.

Throughout my career, I have accompanied various companies to adopt new technologies and use digital products for various functions, from making their processes more efficient to creating brand experiences.

What is one thing people should know about you? I have met many people who have kindly taught me along this path and have shared their knowledge and passion for design. Professors, colleagues, mentors, and even people walking down the street who share their experiences with you. That is why I seek to be part of projects that have an impact beyond personal benefit. Having a purpose that makes a difference and helps others is what has moved me over the last few years, I know that working with startups is not easy but it sure is rewarding.

What are you most passionate about professionally?
