Hello. Nice to meet you.

Hi. I’m Paulo.

I am a Japanese Brazilian designer living in Illinois.


Ive discovered UX tools allow me to reframe my natural curiosity and expertise in a more meaningful professional perspective.


I’m currently translating my skills and 20 years of design thinking to the UX industry, with certification by Google.


What I most value professionally is being part of a healthy working environment.

Because, at the end of the day, that's the workplace UX.

Wherever people are pleased to work at, that’s where I also want to be.


In a close second place would come a creative culture, diversity, and teamwork.
