As a designer in order to solve product/brand problems, I work based on 3 principles: Clarity, engagement, and visual appeal.

In addition to my experience as web & graphic designer, I successfully ran my own design studio for 11 years, managing teams of over 30 designers and developers, proven myself as an effective communicator, project manager, and entrepreneur.

Through all those years I helped launch several projects for both web and mobile.

I’m also proficient in web technologies such as Git, Html, Css, jQuery, Ruby on Rails and Php, skills that make me comfortable to work with developers.
