About me

I'm originally from Argentina, but my upbringing was scattered across different locations due to my adventurous and job-seeking parents.

After completing my degree, I became a digital nomad, moving around for a decade before finally settling in the beautiful French Basque Country.

Since 2010, I have worked remotely with a diverse range of companies and app development agencies, including Messapps, Witco, Schneider Electric, and Vox City Group.

Additionally, I have created illustrations for clients such as MIT, Flovatar, and Deloitte.

I am a part of the Toptal network of freelancers since 2016.

Professional Highlights: Having the opportunity to give a design workshop at NYU, which was organized by Messapps.

As a UX/UI Designer & Illustrator with a degree in Advertising, I specialize in collaborating with startups to transform their ideas and vision into an innovative digital product or service that is centered around the user experience.

My skills

User interface design

With more than 13 years of experience in the field, my expertise lies in designing user interfaces that are both visually appealing and highly functional. My approach to design is centered around usability, ensuring that the end product is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also intuitive and easy to use. Additionally, I am always up-to-date with the latest design trends and technologies, constantly seeking new ways to improve the user experience and stay ahead of the curve.

Scalable design

By establishing a strong design foundation early on, clients can ensure that their product or service will be able to handle the demands of a growing market. This includes not only the visual design of the product or service, but also the user experience, functionality, and overall user interface.

Jill of all trades

As a designer for startups, I have multiple responsibilities. In addition to my role as a product designer, I also design logos, create landing pages, develop presentations to secure funding, and even produce marketing and social media materials.

Communication is Queen

Clear and regular communication is crucial for building a great working relationship with clients. I recognize that each client has unique communication preferences, and I accommodate them. Regardless of the preference, I make myself available for regular updates to ensure that clients are always informed about the status of our projects.

More about me

I have an infinite number of hobbies. I get easily excited about pretty much anything related to sports, art and design, traveling, nature, psychology, sociology, and more. I am curious about human behavior, social norms, and why we don't question the stories we make up more often.

I surf regularly at my local spots, as well as doing a couple of surf trips per year.

I am also learning how to sail and can often be found daydreaming while overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
