I'm from Uruguay and recently started to move around the world with my family! currently, I'm in NY (metropolitan area).
From my early years, I have a predisposition to enjoy solving problems, my father showed me the way with his mix of art and natural ability to craft useful things.
When I was young my Mom motivated and enrolled me in a small Design School, where I met my first mentor, he is that particular kind of teacher with a strong personality who prefers a very practical approach avoiding specific tools, always pushing me to try new design related stuff.
After that, I started to work as a Graphic Designer in a printing shop where I acquired the love for the paper stuff, In parallel, I took different kinds of workshops like video editing and more.
So I come back to my mentor to take a Web Design course, just to turn my way into the digital world. I think there was the first breakpoint on my journey because I had the first contact with very important concepts like User Interfaces, Usability, HTML/CSS and more.
When I started to work as a Web Designer and Front-end Developer, I immediately know that's my place, I consider myself as a lucky guy because I had the opportunity to constantly learn from many companies and teams, working inside and externally too.
Another milestone in my way was those intense years of work and learning on a growing software company where I also had the opportunity to make some friends for life and take the Scrum Master workshop, after that, I officially started to embrace the agile philosophy and combine those methodologies in my daily workflow.
In the last years, I being working all-most remotely as a Self-employed Designer collaborating with many companies and startups, also I had the chance to build and manage my own design teams in the middle.
I’m very grateful to all the people I met in this journey because I been improving my skills while I working side by side with them.
These days I'm complementing my experience taking some online courses as a member of the Interaction Design Foundation.
So, whats next? I’m always open to new challenges...
