UX | UI Designer

Hello, and welcome to  my website! I would like to share some details about who I am, where I come from and where I am going. Originally, I am from Mexico, where I graduated Cum Laude as a Visual Information Designer from Universidad de Las Americas de Puebla (UDLAP) in 2013. I lived a year abroad in Japan, when I had the opportunity to visit Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia and Singapore. I was deeply inspired by the culture and technology. When I returned to Mexico, I wanted to continue travelling while working as a freelance designer. During that time, I discovered my passion for  interactivity, information architecture and web design. So, I decided I had to shift my career towards web or product design.

In 2014, I came to beautiful British Columbia, where I fell in love with the scenery. As an outdoor enthusiast and an avid photographer, here is where I’ve decided to call home. I had the opportunity to study New Media Design and Web Development in BCIT in 2016, where I graduated with honours. 

After having to take a year off work for immigration purposes, I finally became a Canadian Permanent Resident in late 2021. That sabbatical year was a great opportunity for me to finally get a puppy, my little girl Beans, who has changed my life for the better. I also had the chance to take some illustration courses, focus on my health and explore British Columbia. 

My current career goal is to focus in User Interface Design, improve my User Experience Design skills and become a Product Designer. I would love to design children books in the future.
