About me


For the past 16 years i've been working both client and agency side and for the past two I was a teacher at a Design School based in Portugal.

Faster than my own shadow. Worked more than 500 clientes and almost 5000 projects throughout my career. What I have learned

Work well under pressure, on (noisy) open spaces and on multiple projects at the same time but I am also used to small team environment. Very autonomous and organized.

I love anything UI related, but designing apps and responsive websites is what I do best. Graphic Design, Social Media or Advertising are my other skills. Usually I prefer a Mac with Adobe CS but also know my way around Sketch.
