How did you get into design?

I approached design for the first time when I was a teen. I used to make horrible collages in Corel Draw… Years later, while I was at uni I got into graphic design in a more “real” and “functional” way. I started exploring different areas and discovered the amazing world of usability and user experience. I knew that was my thing!

Why are you at Liferay?

I guess it is the right place at the right time. I was feeling a bit stuck at my previous job and after a couple of chats with the Liferay team I felt I was completely aligned with the vision and people culture. A really good team to learn from :)
