Work with me

I'm a Designer with a background in Art and experience using visuals to improve public spaces and communicate ideas.

I am currently looking to transition into a UX Design role with a creative company in Melbourne.

A bit about me: I like drawing on paper and walls, reading science fact and fiction, telling stories in books and stages, and exploring forests and coral reefs. Those things are the source of my creativity.

I grew up in a family of environmental activists in Brazil before moving to Australia in 2010. My upbringing amongst activism and the biological sciences continues to influence everything I do.

To get a picture of who I am and how I think, have a look at my writing on Medium, or my visual journal on Instagram.
