Get to know a litle bit more about my path and my drive.

My multidisciplinary skills and user-centric mindset that originates from design thinking are the foundation of my holistic approach to design. I am curious by nature and my goal is to spend the most time possible understanding users and defining their real problems. I use my critical thinking in every step of my process and I use the methods and tools meaningfully. I am fascinated with human behavior and emotional intelligence, I spend many hours observing people and that will always be my biggest source of inspiration.

I am committed, enthusiastic, and decisive. In a professional context, I get energy from being inspired, inspiring others, facilitating processes, achieving goals, and delivering results.

In the past years, I have developed a deep passion for shaping future UX Designers and I am currently committed to it exclusively.

I have always had a tremendous hunger for knowledge fuelled by the need for experimentation so I grew my skills in 2023 by taking a postgraduate diploma in Digital Fabrication at FabAcademy.

Ik spreek een klein beetje Nederlands, Portuguese (Mother Tongue), English (Fluent), Spanish (Basics), and enough Italian to keep a simple conversation going. I love to travel and I am on a mission to visit at least one city per country. So far I have been to 13 countries and 1 state (USA).

UX Design teaching and mentoring

Since 2022, I have been mentoring students from the UX Academy Foundation and the UX Academy at DesignLab through personalized one-on-one sessions. In these sessions, I provide valuable feedback, offer guidance, and clarify intricate aspects of UX. When you enroll in the course, you can request me as your mentor, and I will be dedicated to supporting you every step of the way.

I've been providing feedback to students of the Professional Diploma in UX Design course at the UX Design Institute through our interactive webinar series since 2022. If you've watched the webinars and have any questions or thoughts, feel free to reach out to me via email.

From May 2020 to May 2024, I was teaching Ideation and Interaction Design classes, covering topics such as Information Architecture, Wireframes, and Flows, as well as Usability Testing at the UX/UI Design bootcamp at allWomen. In the October 2023 edition I lead the entire bootcamp as a solo teacher!
