About me

I am a design graduate with over 8 years of experience in UX and UI design. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Design from UFPE (Brazil) in 2010, which was twice voted as the best university in the north and northeast of Brazil. Currently, I am finishing a Master's in Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Siegen (Germany). Currently, I am helping companies to deliver better user experiences by creating UI and UX projects; including wireframes, personas, and prototypes; for various platforms. I have been keeping up with digital technologies for several years, and I firmly believe that understanding the creative possibilities and technical implications of these technologies, as well as human behavior, is essential for creating a better user experience. This has led me to master design tools such as Figma, Illustrator, as well as learn the fundamentals of HTML, CSS and frameworks like react-native.
