About

Hello there! I'm Jaime, Design Leader, Advisor and Mentor.

I’ve worked for 20+ years across the EU and US creating digital products and strategies that bring clear and creative solutions to complex problems.

As a strategist leader I’m the bridge between design, business and engineering. I’ve lead dozens digital projects for institutions like the Inter-American Development Bank, Sketch, Santander Bank, Audi, Match and several startups and SMEs.

Outside of work, I lead a stoic lifestyle fueled by curiosity and I’m a geeky podcaster that loves to talk about all kinds of topics. I enjoy traveling, having meals with friends and building LEGO listening to 90’s grunge.
