About

 
 
 

I’m a Digital Designer with 13 years experience. Over the last 7 years I have focused my career on User Experience Research, User Experience Design and Visual Strategy. I'm passionate about identifying problems and turning them into intuitive interfaces.

I’ve helped several companies to achieve their goals through a Human Centred Design approach. Developing early products and concepts, as well as existing products and its interactions. I believe that the success of any design is based on how easy, enjoyable and engaging is for final users.

Based in Palma de Mallorca, I’ve worked remotely on several projects in Europe. Agile methodologies and a bunch of online tools for task management, conferences, research, collaboration, design and so on help us everyday to work aligned and efficiently. I’m specialised in facilitating sessions remotely and in person. More than happy to fly where your team or users are based if the product demands it.

If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.

How I got here

Before moving to Palma de Mallorca I've lived in Madrid and London. I started to feel passionate about UX even though I didn’t know what that really meant. In Madrid I had the chance to start playing with some methodologies and have formal training though the Usability and UX course taught by Daniel Torres Burriel. In 2012 I moved to London looking for new adventures. I worked at vzaar as the only UX/UI designer in the team. I’m proud of the goals met as a team and how much I’ve learnt with them. Not just by implementing UX on our workflow, but also working with agile methodologies and a collaborative team approach. I’ve had the opportunity to be mentored by Jonathan Culling during more than 3 years (my Obi-Wan Kenobi :). After many meetups and UX events I met such an inspiring UX community in London. The formal training User Experience Design at General Assembly has kept me updated about the latest UX trends. As a community lover and thanks to my hungry for new knowledges, you might often see me at UX events in Europe. I’m an active participant of Mallorca Startups and one of the founding members of Mallorca UX. I’ve also lead a UX training at the Business School ESERP . I've given a few talks along the way, including at UX Camp Brighton (keynote: how UX helped us to do a better job). 

Be curious, stay focused and work joyfully.

 
 
 

My personal side

Traveling the world is a core part of my life. Other cultures give me fresh perspectives and new ideas for innovation.

I’ve gained amazing insights and learnings from entrepreneurs and Digital Nomads by joining Nomad House Vietnam, getting inspired at Nomad City and being part of the Nomad Cruise tribe. I’m always looking for my next adventure and new opportunities to keep learning.

Discovering other cultures helps us connect the dots around the world.
