Hola! Hello!

I’m a Designer, born and raised in COLOMBIA, but now living in Boston, MA.

Specialties: Design Management, Service Design, User Experience Design, Creative and Visual Communication, and Design Thinking.

I’m currently working at Wayfair as an Experience Design Manager. I enjoy the challenge and the nature of my role, where I get to bring the voice of our users to help drive product innovation and deliver a delightful customer experience. Above anything else, I am passionate of mentoring and supporting the growth of junior experience designers to facilitate their career progression and performance.

Prior to this position, I worked for a couple of years at VML Kansas City, as a Senior Experience Designer, where I got to contribute to the design of unique digital experiences for a variety of clients, such as Ford, Gatorade, Sprint, Spire, Kimberly Clark, United Rentals, Boys and Girls Club of Greater Kansas City.

Before coming to the U.S. I taught Graphic Design for several years in different universities, UACUniversidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano while doing side projects that range from UI/UX Design to Strategic Design.  

I balance my day job with personal creative work, like watercolor illustration and lettering, which has taken me to sell my work online and at local art fairs. This creative outlet has allowed me to work on other side projects and also keep my creativity flowing. In my free time, you can find me painting, enjoying the time with my family at the park, or discovering new coffeeshops and bookstores in the area.
