About me

Cause business is also about relationships a brief introduction about me...

I discovered my passion about digital design when taking one of the first online Masters I found in 2001. At that time, I was using Photoshop for design and Dreamweaver for frontend. I coded my first online store in asp programming language and by then I understood coding (except HTML and CSS) wasn’t really my thing. Reason why I focused 100% in design. Since then I haven’t stopped learning.

I used to combine other jobs with studying design but one day I decided to join university, that’s how I became Industrial Designer 3 years in Valencia (Spain), 1 year in Düsseldorf (Germany). My german though is still too shy :) 

Few jumps around the world later I ended up meeting personally Jakob Nielsen (Award to the best design multiplatform application in 2012). And almost by chance I co-founded a startup company called Apiumtech, based in 3 countries Spain, Andorra and Vietnam offering services about agile development, offshoring, software architecture and user experience design. A long story happened in between. Currently Apiumtech is now Apiumhub and I am no longer a co-founder anymore.

– Just like in design, I like to keep things simple also for life.

Following my passion I've decided to continue providing user experience design services as a freelance focusing only in designing and collaborating directly with the people involving the projects.  Everything else is not essential.
