I am an Interaction Designer with experience in User Interface, User Experience, Prototyping, and Creative Collaboration.
The people I work with consider me a team player who believes in multidisciplinary environments. I solve problems by networking with internal stakeholders, including external customers, to initiate and design human-centric and technically feasible solutions.
I love networking, knowledge sharing, and writing. I can speak English, Spanish, Danish and at the moment I am learning Japanese – 日本語.
When I am not working, I enjoy playing video games and doing street photography.

Programming for Designers
Designing Connected Products
Collaboration is an essential part of a designer’s workflow. Doing that on canvas introduces brand new levels of efficiency. But what happens when a designer moves beyond the canvas? In this talk I explored collaboration on a cross-functional level to shed more light on what it means to share — be it sharing work, knowledge, or opinions.
Every designer goes through the process of effectively documenting their work and more importantly, sharing it with the wider team. In this workshop we looked at ways to make knowledge more accessible and documenting designs.
Guest Lecture at Universidad Internacional de La Rioja – sharing my design experience with participants and discussing tools, collaboration and documentation. This lecture was part of the Prototyping Tools subject with David G. and Yusef H.
