Hola! I'm Claudio, a digital product designer who cares about engineering.

I'm a first-year graduate student in the Integrated Product Design (IPD) Masters program at the University of Pennsylvania. I am currently working to improve my product design and problem finding skills, while also honing my technical and programming skills, which I believe are essential to create delightful experiences and products.

I am a very curious person; I am passionate about knowing how things work and how to create beautiful products with my own hands. I have experience working with startups, agencies, and leading design teams in large companies.
