Profile

Web/Digital Designer living in Scotland since 2012, working as freelance and currently looking for a designer or front-end developer position in a creative space.

Over the last 7 years, I have worked in several projects improving the digital presence of companies of many different kinds.

I am a graduate from the Polytechnic University of Valencia, with a Ba in Fine Arts, and cursed studies from Industrial Design’s Master at the same university when I started to work as Web Designer at Internet Tourist Solutions, one of the main holiday rentals booking company in Spain, where I was on charge of the redesign of the company’s booking system.

In 2010 decided to move to work in a freelance basis where I found different sized challenges, from small business to large content portals with millions of visits per month.
