I am a Service and UX/UI designer born in Sao Paulo and based in New York. I was always interested in solving complex systems and in using the craft to the benefit of great user experiences. Although I try to pursue a more hands-on/pragmatic vision of design, I became deeply involved with the human centered approach of services after studying and working in several projects that favoured the qualitative methodology. Hence, I am a designer gravitating between the holistic dot-connection and deep pixel perfeccionism.
