About Me

About Me

Challenges. Pixels. Code.

I'm a 27 year-old UI/UX designer from Portugal.

I'm passionate about designing beautiful interfaces for mobile and desktop apps, always with an eye on human-computer interaction principles and product goals.

When not designing, I turn mockups and pixels into code.
I love to use technology as a way to change, inspire and improve people's lives.

Apart from being a travel lover and passionate about cultures and new challenges, my background is all about digital aesthetics, web development and digital media products.

Have a look at my work and get in touch if you're interested.
