Who am I?

No space for existential question

I’m a curious soul with a multidisciplinary background trying to find my way through UX/UI Design, Research, and Innovation. 
I have a keen interest in the empathy of Design, following the ways in which technology is shaping humanity and intersectionality. Passionate about true world change and eager to work towards positive impact. 

A pragmatic, free-spirited person, internet culture observer, and critical thinker by nature interested in coolhunting, technology, storytelling, and creative ideas.

With10 years of experience as a journalist, I had the chance to tell multiple stories about different people and the realities that I encountered. I developed fundamental skills in interviews, teamwork, communicative and analytical skills, and especially empathy. As a Sports Journalist, I had the opportunity to cover everything from the Olympic Games and FIFA World Cup to football tournaments in indigenous villages 

At the end of 2018, I decided to jump out of my comfort zone to see the world in a different way. I dared to take on new professional perspectives through the Design and Innovation field. My ace in the hole was to use my expertise in understanding people and bring a fresh perspective to add to a multidisciplinary field.  In my opinion, that makes the UX Design field such a nurturing and vivid professional field.

Having lived in four different countries, I have a penchant for multicultural environments. It also required openness and a sense of adventure. I'm always on the lookout for new “stuff”. For the seeds of change that drive our culture in new and ever more distinctive ways.

Graduated in Journalism at Universidade Federal da Bahia (Salvador, Brazil), post-graduated in Trends and Culture Management at University of Lisbon (Portugal) and Design Innovation, Coolhunting and Global Trends at Elisava (Barcelona, Spain) with a Master's Degree in Culture and Communication at the School of Arts and Humanities of University of Lisbon. 

Always on the lookout for great stories to live and share.
