What was your dream job when you were a kid?
As a kid, I dreamed of being an Architect. I spent countless hours building things with LEGO. As a young adult, I ended up pursuing a career in Design and taking a bachelor in Audiovisual and Multimedia in Lisbon, Portugal.
What was your first job as a Product Designer?
I started working as a User Experience Designer for Log in 2013, a consultancy in Lisbon who welcomed me with open arms and gave me the tools to grow professionally with a variety of projects, customers and deadlines.
What conferences have you attended lately?
You might have seen me at UXLX 2017 in Lisbon or Awwwards Conference 2018 in Berlin.
Which tools do you use?
For years I used Sketch and Invision as my main tools to sketch, design and prototype but recently made a change to work only with Figma. For prototyping where animations make a difference, I prefer to use Principle.
What was your most successful side project?
The most successful so far was Tint UI, which is a tool where you pick HEX color codes from official color palettes. This tool reached 10.000+ visits in the first month.
What are your hobbies?
I enjoy traveling and discovering new cities, food, and cultures. I also like photography a lot and Instagram is where I share some of my travel memories (check some photos below). On Saturday morning I like to play Squash or go for a workout at the local gym.
For the past 6 years, I've been working on the intersection of Research and Design. I take ownership of user research and user testing, wireframing, visual mockups, and prototyping.
I'm a maker that can't stop building and designing things. Every weekend I like to dedicate part of my time to be hands-on in a side project.
