About

I'm a UX designer and Photographer with 5 years of experience in San Francisco and Mexico City, where I have worked for tech companies, local businesses and other private clients, mostly in creative and innovative projects.

I have an academic background in social science and humanities, and a professional experience in online Marketing working mainly in the education and travel industries.

I am an analytical and methodical person, but also very empathetic. My current and previous experience and interest has given me a broad understanding of the design principles, excellent planning and organizational skills, and because I have worked in different countries and in different areas, it is easy for me to bring to the table a new perspective and a different solution. I can work well as part of my team as well as by myself - due to my work as an independent photographer. 

I am currently looking for a full-time position, preferably in San Francisco, but I am open to other opportunities.
