I'm a senior product designer with a strong foundation in user experience, visual design, product strategy, and front-end development. I have the expertise to create memorable digital experiences with business goals in mind.

In my spare time, I love to ride my bicycle, pet my dog and try to catch waves on the Portuguese coast.

Feel free to shoot me an email or connect with me on LinkedIn, Instagram, Dribbble or Twitter.

His leadership and energy was crucial to steer the project in which we've worked together in the right direction. Coupled with a talent for reframing complex problems by asking the right questions allowed Miguel to communicate and provide the necessary clarity that the team needed to be in sync and keep our eyes in our north star..."
