I live with my family in a small surf town on the Atlantic coast in southern Spain. I've been designing professionally since 2007, mainly as a product designer and UX manager. Before that, I ran an agency designing and building websites for small businesses, consulted for enterprise clients, worked as a data visualisation designer, a print designer, an operations manager, and a developer.
For the last few years, I've led design and research teams and helped designers do their best work.
When I'm not working, I like to play with my kids on the beach, post on LinkedIn to help designers with their career growth, spend time on the ocean surfing and windsurfing, make tacos, work out, and read about design.
