👋🏽 Hi there!

Diego leverages his strong background to focus every phase of the design process – discovery, ideation, prototyping, and iterating – on meeting user needs with high standards of quality. This combined with his business intuition and strong interpersonal skills make him an incredible asset. He is one of the most collaborative and inclusive people I have ever worked with.

As a researcher, I was amazed how quickly Diego was able to get users to open up and share their stories, which allowed us to gather rich insights about their lives and pain points. As a designer, he demonstrated his ability to tackle complex problems, quickly generate a variety of concepts, and collaborate with engineers and product managers to implement designs. Diego is a natural leader. He is charismatic, takes initiative, and enjoys learning from his peers. I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him.

Without a doubt Diego has been one of the most amazing UX professionals I have had a chance to work with in Silicon Valley. Always with a positive attitude, always energetic and working hard, Diego directly contributed to Meebo’s revenue growth. It’s not often that one gets to work with such talent as Diego.

Diego has a great ability to think through the entire flow of the users experience and optimize every facet of the unit. He is proactive, well prepared for meetings, and gives thorough analysis as a follow up summary. Diego seemed to make all the projects easier because of his command of each phase of the project. To top it all off, he has a great sense of humor and is a pleasure to work with.

Diego is a super talented person with a really wide range of skill set in both UX Research and Design. He was able to conduct really well defined user research and tests in an Agile scrum environment, which is impressive. He also helped me with some of my Interaction design work with useful feedback. He is an awesome team member and its really fun working with him.

Diego took all the complex requirements we gave him for our product and cut the complexity down to something that was simple to implement, intuitive to use, and powerful. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a quality designer.
