1. My Personality
I'm “The Architect” (INTJ-T) in Myers-Briggs. I enjoy crafting innovative solutions through strategic thinking and curiosity. Sometimes, I may seem introspective – it's just my mind wandering through a maze of ideas! 🤔

A generalist at heart, I got into design because it allows me to pursue interests in creative, psychology, and business. 🪄 My journey began as a web designer and developer, where I found joy in experimenting with various tools and continuously pushing the boundaries of what could be done on the web.
Later, during my time in advertising, I turned intuitive ideas into impactful visuals across web, mobile apps, and social media platforms for clients such as POND'S, Samsung, Visa, P&G, among others, helping them grow their businesses. Along the way, I've been fortunate to receive some awards 🏆.
To deepen my craft, I joined an early-stage startup as their first product designer. Since then, I've worked with cross-functional product teams of varying sizes, guiding the product development cycle from discovery to launch. Aside from loving all aspects of the process, my strengths include synthesizing research and shaping strategies, adopting the best design practices to create meaningful designs while also managing collaborations and project implementation.
I thrive in a people-first culture that fosters collective energy, collaboration, and mutual support. My goal is to create a space where our team brings out the best in one another.
I firmly believe in design's ability to transform lives by meeting human needs, creating positive experiences, and driving progress across various domains, shaping our way of life and our interaction with the world. 🌎
Oh, and by the way, I absolutely love fries 🍟, waffles 🧇, tea 🍵, music festivals and concerts 🎶, summer vibes 🌻, yoga 🤸, dogs 🐶, road trips 🚗, psychological thrillers 🧠, and sometimes weird documentaries too.
