About me

I started off my career covering every step in the product design process in 2005. The products and experiences I have built derive from valuable business opportunities to fully explore the balance between user needs and business strategies.

With a BA in Advertising and an MBA in Marketing, I have worked with global brands such as Jeep, Fiat, Samsung, FILA, Brookfield, in addition to some of the largest South American banks (Bank of Brazil and Caixa), Ministry of Health of Brazil, Ministry of Tourism of Brazil, Brazilian National Health Agency, Brazilian Marine and corporations.

Additionally, I have been working as a Business Design Consultant, helping Startups to validate ideas, properly explore opportunities in the market and design a Minimum Loveable Product for their customers through user-centered design principles.

My entrepreneurial spirit enables me to take ownership of all my projects. As an experienced designer who have also worked as a Front-end Developer for several years, I have a solid understanding of digital functionality, architecture, color, typography, user interface, user experience, user interaction, and navigation. In addition, as a detail-focused, creative, and highly organized professional with experience designing, prototyping, coding and mentoring digital products and companies, I possess a wide range of knowledge and skills that allow me to contribute toward the success of any project.
