I'm a technologist by formation and a designer by vocation, having over 10 years of experience with agile software design and development.
I am passionate about interaction design, front-end development, agile methodologies and processes and coaching, but above all, what I really love is to solve people's problems. I believe every designer's main mission is to improve people's lives, being it through technology or by improving the way they experience the world.
