I'm Federico (or just Fed) I'm a Design Thinker and Problem solver
and I'm a
- UX Designer
- UI Designer
- in Cork
I define myself as a curious person - and my desire for knowledge constantly spurs me on to dismantle and rebuild just about anything I can put my hands on.
I'm extremely creative and enjoy designing, developing and building; from digital and web technologies to more traditional techniques such as photography, design for print and woodwork. On-going self-improvement is also important to me and I continue to pursue studies and side-projects in my spare time.
I perform well both as part of a team as well as leading others - and am convinced that collaboration leads to better results.
I'm also a dad of a 4 year old little daughter, which has taught me a LOT.
