Born and raised in Colombia, studying abroad, and working and living in Norway, has equipped me with intercultural communication tools that are useful for working with UX design and web developing. My language skills allow me to work in international environments: I am a native Spanish speaker, I am fluent in both English and Portuguese, and currently, I am learning Norwegian (B2).

I have an interdisciplinary learning approach towards design and UX, which has helped me to master various aspects of the field and become a flexible designer (from branding to editorial, from millimeters to pixels, from user interface to user experience). I have used the Adobe package for over 10 years, and I keep up to date with newly released features. 

I am sensitive when understanding the technological needs of different groups, and my career and life goal is to contribute to the fostering and the empowerment of marginalized social groups through technology and design. 

On a personal level, I am an eleven-time marathon finisher (New York, Lima, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Paris, Berlin, Chicago, Boston, Oslo, Bergen and Jølster), two-time “Gran Fondo” finisher (GFNY Colombia and Gran Fondo Nario Quintana), as well a finisher of the Cartagena Ironman 70.3.
