In the last 10 years I've worked in different areas, not looking for the right thing to do, but because my interests were changing according to new trends or with something I was discovering in the tech area.Last 10 years

Currently I am the bridge between design, development and product teams.March, 2018
User Experience Design
Actualy the most important concept here. When I started to know more things about all this process my work started to make more sense. The goal is to make a service efficient but also pleasurable (webapp, native mobile app etc), trying to not do something based on my ego or in what I think that's right.
User Interface Design
This step is where the dreams become visually possible. It is an exaustive step where I need to keep the interface simpler but beatiful at the same time. Definitly is the step where the product really born.
A bit of Front-end Development
I don't consider myself as a skilled and complete front-end developer, but I like to know everything about it. I like to design a product also knowing the diference of the implementation of the solutions A , B and C. This turns my team work a little more effective, and completes me as a Designer.
