I started my career at web development around 2010. During this time I aimed capacitating myself in front-end development, focus in User Interface, working directly with modular architecture in html, componentization and advanced CSS, from animations and pixel perfect to browser performance improvements.

With time I’d been more and more involved with UI development and engaging fully with teams of User Experience.

I´m constantly seeking to improve my knowledge and getting to know new people. I currently work as Design Operations Leader, focusing entirely in team leadership and product management. I am responsible for maintaining the focus and productivity, as well as increasing in performance, developing and develivering scalability of products through Design Systems.

I act as bridge between the teams of engineering and user experience, for I ease the communication of these two teams.

I try to write articles whenever possible, study leadership and product management and also create open source projects or just things using CSS
