In the last years I've worked with media networks, musicians, artists, educators, designers, developers, agencies, small businesses and industry leaders to design and develop their websites or apps.
I collaborated with them in UX, web design, HTML5, CSS3, mobile apps, project managing and development, Sometimes in only one of those fields, other times in all at the same time.
I speak Spanish, English and I'm still fighting with German (guess who's winning...). Although I'm based in Berlin, I can work on and off site across Europe as a team member or as one-man band. My comfort zone includes Responsive Web Design, mobile app design, UX, HTML, CSS and also project managing (the real way, getting my hands dirty, not updating MS Project files). Bicycle touring, live concerts, slow travel, cooking, Wilco, Ukulele, Bill Evans and low-cost flights can be found there too.
In November 2012 I started my blog about design and usability.
I studied Graphic Design at Escuela Superior de Diseño Gráfico in Rosario, Argentina and then continued my education at the Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Arts in New York City in the fields of design and typography with Ed Benguiat, Milton Glaser and Martin Solomon as main instructors.
I started with web design in 1995 in Rowayton, CT, USA. Three years later, after a short period in Argentina, I moved to New York City to work at StarMedia Network as an Art Director. Early in 2000, Parsons School of Design appointed me to teach "Diseño Web en Español" for the Continuing Education department.
In 2001 I relocated to Barcelona, Spain, where I continued working as Creative Director. Four years later, I opened my own studio, working with leading companies in the fashion and payment businesses. After a short period living in Vilnius, Lithuania, I moved to Berlin, Germany in 2011. Later that year I taught "HTML5 & CSS3 para Diseñadores Web" at XAL in Barcelona.
Here is a list of my bibles. When I say "no, text that size is impossible to read", "Let's simplify it first" or "Smart is the new Dumb" you can be sure it came from these readings. I usually recite passages of "The Design of Everyday Things" around Moritzplatz. Now you know.
