Expert Product Designer with Alias experience
Last active: 09/02/2014
After a few years designing accessories for major automotive industries in Brazil such as Fiat, Volkswagen, Toyota, Ford, GM among others, I can say that I´m very experienced in this industry. I was responsible for designing new projects and coordinating the teamwork, including human and financial resources, in addition to travel extensively representing the design team in meetings with the board of directors and clients.
Aspiring to develop new design skills connected with a new reality of sustainable development I went to Lisbon, Portugal, where I did a master in Design for Sustainability. This new and wide experience opened my mind and encouraged me to start a new project in 2012, a solo travel around the world. During fourteen months I went backpacking from Chile to Mexico by land, crossing Europe and reached Asia where I joined the crew of a British sailboat that was circumnavigating the globe. It was a unique experience of contact with the world and its diversity, visiting different places and meeting new people and their culture.
Finally I have good communication skills, speak Portuguese, English and Spanish fluently. Able to work in different stages of creation and product development, from research, concept, manual and virtual sketch, virtual modeling, clay modeling, exterior design, graphic design process and general management by implementing the precepts of design for sustainability. Good knowledge of the following software: Autodesk Alias, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Corel Draw and Microsoft Office.
