I like to build and ship products. This is exactly what I do at Lepsta Inc, where we are building the developers tool of the future playing the UX Designer role. Previously I worked for an award-winning Mozambican company delivering technical solutions for social and economic development of emerging markets where, besides communication and project management, I served as a technical consultant for World Bank’s Mozambique-based projects.
As design advocate, founded the IxDA Maputo chapter, created Baoba Design Conference, become Country Manager of Interaction Design Foundation for Mozambique and member of the Pan Afrikan Design Institute. I am also the Head of Community Development at Lepsta Developers, a community of “futuristic developers” with a keen interest in the future of software development with activities in 2 continents, 6 countries and 11 cities.
I approach each design and innovation challenge starting from people, drawing inspiration from empathy for human stories and data, and balancing between rigour and creative excellence in the process. I am most happy when I work at the intersection of Strategy and Experience, and finding ways to achieve the best results by innovating on capabilities, process, methodologies, and design tools. Through my work, it’s my intention to elevate the human experience, encourage dialogue, and create a positive impact in the world.
