About me

Experiences don’t happen on a screen, they happen in the mind. That’s why understanding human behavior and heuristics is at the center of what I do as a user experience designer. I draw on Cognitive Science, Psychology, Philosophy and Sociology to guide the development of ethical, accessible, and innovative products that provide users with meaningful experiences.

    As Experience Designer, I create innovative software with human-centered design. At any stage of the product development lifecycle, I strengthen ideas and deliver results with a research-driven methodology. Through interviews, prototyping, and experimentation, I efficiently derive essential customer insight. Guided by data, I design tailored web and mobile experiences that give users a feeling of familiarity and empowerment.
