I am an SF-based Product Designer with 10+ years of experience, strong coding skills, pixel detailist and a strong team player.
I was born in Havana, Cuba and moved to San Francisco three years ago, where I currently live. I graduated from the Higher Institute of Design (ISDI) in Havana with a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design in 2008. During my college years I worked with many companies as a freelance designer. Upon graduation I joined CubaLiteraria, a Cuban web agency focused on the national Literature. Soon after, I founded a web agency called Tropos Design and had the opportunity to work for several clients from around the globe.
On 2011 I joined Visibrain, a very promising French startup dedicated to displaying and analyzing Twitter statistics in real time. Two years later I joined Blendspace. Focused on creating a revolutionary experience for teachers and students.
We got acquired in 2014 by the UK company Tes Global, who shared the same love and passion for improving education around the world. I’ve been working with them since then.
My areas of specialization are Visual and Interaction design, Front-end development and user research. I’m also very passionate about Illustration.
As a designer I am an expert in using several techniques to carry out my projects, from hand-drawing sketches to developing solutions with Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator or prototyping with HTML & CSS, inVision and Framer, among others.
