Designing & building tools for developers at Microsoft.

For the last 12+ years, I've designed digital products between Madrid, London and now, from San Francisco. I also co-founded and later sold my company Erasmusu.

My career started as a Software Developer but it soon became clear that my true passion was Design. I love combining both skillsets to create products that fulfill a clear purpose.
