"Make your products so simple that users already know how to use it" — Nir Eyal

A short note about me

I’ve been building web and mobile apps since 2011. And I like to say that I’m both a dreamer and a doer; dreamer because I aim high, doer because I execute.

It goes without saying that building truly great products – that people love – is tough. Not only it takes an incredibly talented team, but also a strong focus on the customer’s needs. Most importantly, great products are simple, easy to use. And pulling that off can be a hell of a challenge. Great products serve a purpose. They solve an specific problem. Not two. Not three. One. Specific. Problem. Great products delight users and make them come back. Repeatedly. Great products are hard, but so worth it.

As a Product Manager and entrepreneur, I need to trust my team and my cofounder with my life. My role, as such, is to make sure things are being shipped on time and at an excellent quality (I’m a design freak, you know). “How” they do it doesn’t really concerns me – that’s why they need to be trustworthy and outstanding in the first place. The “what”, though, does. A great, productive team doesn’t need a micromanager. It needs a facilitator. And that’s exactly what I try to be in the projects I’m involved with.

Other than that, I design websites and mobile apps out of pure passion. I can code a bit, too, if needed (mostly basic frontend stuff, but I’m currently learning Swift).

At the end of the day, I’m just another product guy, passionate about working with people who are smarter than me and building products that make a difference, somehow.

Recent Work

Here are snapshots of the projects I’ve been involved with most recently.
