Challenges. Pixels. Code.
I'm a 29 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.
Some projects I've been involved in lately.
