About

I'm an Analytical Designer

I have an insatiable curiosity and passion for uncovering answers. I learn from every experience and I identify the obscure meaning behind every design, experience, and event. 

Design better audio experiences

I’ve helped companies and organizations with audio branding and content-related questions: How do we sonificate the brand? How should our virtual assistant speak on Alexa? Does the app need sound design? What kind of podcast content reaches my audience?

Most companies have extensive guidelines for their visual brand identity and content, but when it comes to sound… They realize it’s important, but haven’t figured out how to manage it.

That’s where I come in: I have designed a methodology to find answers in how to manage and design the audio brand identity.
