Hello! I am a Coimbra-Portugal based User Interface Designer (and front-end developer) with passion and enthusiasm for aesthetics, user experience and web design standards. “UI designer who thinks in code” perfectly describes what I love to do: I solve design problems and implement their technical solutions. My specialization covers the visual design, user experience (UX) and front-end development: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I want to make the internet a better place by designing beautiful interfaces.

You can check out some of my work at dribbble, and sometimes I tend to useless and funny things. Occasionally I post some photos on instagram. And last but not least feel free to join my professional network on linked in.

be Responsive helps website makers quickly get an indication of how their site will look on the most popular devices. ** it does not precisely replicate how it will look, for accurate testing always test on the real devices. **

I have spent the past 11-and-a-bit years designing and developing websites and web applications, and I believe that a clean and sharp interface and a great user experience can make a huge success.
