About

My Story

I was born in 1980 in Kharkiv, Ukraine. I grew up in La Habana, Cuba and eventually settled down to live in Costa Rica these past 25 years. I studied architecture at the University of Costa Rica (UCR) but at the same time I fell in love with graphic design (3d, motion, web) finishing my studies as a designer at Universidad Creativa. I have been working on design since 1999. I've been responsibly busy in my adulthood , a father of one in 2004, focused on web design since 2004, proud WordPress lover since 2006, analyzing data for UX since 2012, a father of two in 2014 and a Word camp organizer and speaker since 2015. One of my passions is building amazing web apps. To accomplish this I deep dive into the client's goals and research user industry behavior to understand and design the best experience for the user. My second passion is WordPress. You can always find me organizing a meetup, attending camps or talking about it on my social networks.
