My complete work experience.
Fast overview: tl;dr
Beggining with my first internship at a Microsoft's Educational Program, then my full internship at a Hewllet-Packard Research & Development team. With that came the time where I was doing governement funded research with the Technology Department at my Catholic University (even though I was a Social Communication graduate). While I was graduating, I've worked at a Software Factory and then I've jumped to work at a Startup.
Ok this is cool and all... But the most important was the knowledge that I've acquired there.
I know that user experience strategies and techniques can maximize the potential of the application and positive experience for the end user.
I combine a lot of different areas of knowledge to form my unique perspective on UX Design. They vary from behavior economics, cognitive psychology, sociology, industrial engineering, history, software development and art.
I'm able to translate requirements into interaction flows and artifacts with an amazing visual results. I transform software into beautiful, intuitive, and functional user interfaces.
