Curious about the ways we communicate ideas and fascinated by their power to change how we perceive the world, I have gained a rich experience in creative direction, workflow management, brand identity design, UI/UX design, 3D/CGI and post production.
Lately, my greatest interest is developing fully-immersive interactive VR experiences.
I see VR and augmented reality as the natural evolution of human–computer interaction and so far it has proven to be an impactful way to engage customers and create a lasting impression.
The curiosity that led me to design still dictates the way I approach every new project and client- regardless if they are small businesses or Fortune 500 companies.
After obtaining MA degree in Communication Design, I started my career as a Designer at the Hortelã Magenta Design Studio in Lisbon, Portugal.
Soon after, I co-founded the company Dideia in Leiria, Portugal, where I had a chance to work on the dynamic intersection of communication and product design. I also gained an invaluable experience in leading teams, work delegation and flexibility required in servicing clients with diverse and specific needs.
In 2011, I took the position of the Lead Designer at Webnographer in Lisbon, Portugal. Working closely with clients, I developed presentations and infographics that showed them ways to improve the user experience of their websites.
I currently hold the position of Manager of Creative Design at Arnold Imaging in Kansas City, USA.
My goal is to continue to learn, introduce new ideas and develop solutions that help my clients reach their full market potential and achieve their communication goals.
