About

I collaborate with teams and stakeholders, to create products and design systems, balancing user needs and business value.

Born in Portugal, I moved to Sweden 9 years ago, and have since worked at companies like Ericsson, TriOptima, Mentimeter and Klarna.

During my free time, you can find me mentoring designers at ADPList, trying to spread love and two decades of design/life knowledge. I also post hipster food pics and the occasional rant on social media.
