Over the past 6+ years of experience designing for tech, startups and agencies, I’ve had the good fortune of working with brands like Apple, Uber, SoundCloud, and Red Bull. I gear my ambitions towards improving the visual communication of brands and identities, while looking for originality in every project. I seek multidisciplinary roles; working with web, mobile and traditional medias with the sole purpose of enriching the value of every brand I work with.
