Work Examples

Check the Work Examples area to see how I handle problems and work with different teams, and the Open Source analysis to assess my technical skills.

I’ve been involved as a Front–End expert and UX specialist in projects ranging from content portals to full–fledged applications. Some of those projects included: Games monetization platform, Sports statistics network, Book based homework creator, Collectibles marketplace.

I have formal training in Graphic Design, Typography Design, Color Theory & Copywriting (Licenciatura en Diseño Gráfico, ORT University Uruguay 2005–2008)

Added to that is continuous study and self improvement led by insatiable curiosity. I’ve read books, articles and followed the best people in Front–End to keep my skills up to date, a process I’m sure will continue indefinitely.
