Times are changing. The world is changing. And at this point it doesn’t matter how good or bad of a designer I am.

What truly matters is the change we are able to make through our work. And as professional and human being, I want nothing more than to be able to create work that will help be a part of this change. The change to make the world a better place for us to live in. To restore it back to what it used to be before manmade industrialisation.

I urge you to think beyond yourself. It is imperative and absolutely indispensable to do so, if we want our children to have a better future.

Apologies for the rant, down to business!

Heisann! I’m Cristina! A punk-rock enthusiast, who has a penchant for the 90’s and 00’s greatest hits, loves any kind of street food and is obsessed with Daniel Sloss’s (stand-up comedy) Live Shows.

I consider myself a tireless thinker, seeker of knowledge and self-aware introvert. I’m passionate about physics, philosophy and psychology and I have a thing* for Norway. I believe in animal welfare, human rights and equality; and environmental and ecological sustainability.

Currently, I’m the Machine Learning Designer at AI Coaching GmbH, working alongside two other spectacular ladies (Kelly Mestre – Head of Development and Sara Rijo – Data & Machine Learning Specialist). I also have some really cool designer friends like Morgan Bastos and Inês Gonçalves if you’d like to know more about the people who surround me.

Cross-collaboration: Why devs and designers work better together

“Having empathy is an important skill as a designer because at the end of the day you’re designing something to make someone’s life better. In order to do this, you have to empathise with the people you’re building for.”

Personal Note:

I have decided to take a break from the busy and hectic hamster wheel we are living in these days to focus solely in my current job, in order to have more time to focus on myself as well. However, an updated CV will be uploaded until the 30th September 2019.
