Hello. Nice to meet you.

Hi. I’m Paulo.

I am a Japanese Brazilian designer living in Illinois.


After translating my skills and 20 years of expertise to the UX industry (certified by Google), I'm now able to re-frame my natural curiosity in a more meaningful professional perspective.


At this point in my professional path, what I most value is being part of a healthy workplace: non-toxic, creative and diverse.


Because - at the end of the day - that is employee UX. So, wherever people are pleased to work at, that’s where I also want to be.
