I'm a startup aficionado, designer at origin, focusing on solving people


problems.
I started as a blogger learning how to produce and sell content in different
niches. While doing this I've learned a lot about SEO and how to build
websites for human beings. While moving forwards to ecommerce I got
introduced to the other side of the ad game, the internet marketing part.
I've been researching and using internet marketing skills ever since (SEO,
SEM, Social Media) and I always had an interest on how I can improve my
results and minimise my efforts.
My education continued in multimedia design and after doing webdesign
for more than 6 years I now hold a degree in Multimedia Design and
Communication.
My path has now led my to entrepreneurship where I'm using all of these
skills acquired in order to generate real value propositions for my projects.
I'm learning more each day about startups, products and people focusing
on improving user engagement through metrics.
I was involved in a lot of projects and startups, two of the best being
Conferize and Admazely. I love working in startups and I take every
challenge full on. Now it's time to work for my own startups.
