Work Examples

You can assess my code proficiency by checking:

Education

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

Added to that is thousands of hours reading books and articles from the best, and getting my hands dirty with the concepts I learn. I love learning from everything I can get my hands on and combining paradigms from different fields of knowledge to create new things.

I think that my innate curiosity and exploration have led me to the path I am today, coupled with love for the Internet and the desire to make it better for everyone.
