Hello!

about

As a seasoned designer, I really enjoy helping companies and individuals thrive in an ever-changing world. I like to share my knowledge and use my experience to solve challenges and to improve results. I deliver clear and simple experiences for mobile devices, desktop applications, eCommerce, web platforms and SaaS products, from small businesses to Fortune 500 corporations. I’m also comfortable collaborating with both creatives and engineers within an agile and scrum environment. I’ve worked in small development teams and large corporate projects.

I'm a pixel advocate and someone who is passionate about exploring ways to improve how we interact with our dynamic technology.
