"Remember that what you are building comes from a myriad of great minds working together. From all those designers who came before you, to the brilliant developers you are working with, and the fantastic business strategy folks on your team. No one makes a dent in the world alone.

"I love the internet because it is unfinished. Everyday there are new web pages being created, new apps being launched, new interconnected devices being built, new opportunities for you and I to make something new and to make the web a better place."

"The best designers I know are not the ones that create the nicest or sharpest pixels. They are the ones that have the ability to create great products with others effectively.They share ownership of their design."

It doesn’t matter how good you are at creating products, or how good looking the UI is, or even how innovative the experience is. Unless you are a good negotiator, the product you want to create may never see the light of day.

Story
Tagline
UX Design and Innovation - creating products @Pocket, formerly @Chegg, @meebo, @_Essential and @BentleyUXC - Brasileiro com muito orgulho.
Introduction
Olá. I am a User Experience Designer and Researcher. I empathize with people and create great products for them.

I am an inventor who tells stories through interaction design and flows. I may use markers, sticky notes, fancy pens or ball point pens, I may even create high fidelity mocks using the adobe creative suite, but at the end of the day, what I create is a valuable relationship between people and technology.
