Leandro, Who?

Throughout my professional career, I have always tried to develop myself and take advantage of the opportunities that were at hand. This led me to different areas, from design to marketing. Nevertheless, when I questioned myself about true happiness when working, it was through design that passion and true satisfaction were brought back to my life.

I am very proud of the persistence and the different skills I acquired to adapt to the scenarios that changed so many times. That’s why I love to consider myself an eternal learner and I’m curious to learn different skills like design, digital products, HTML, CSS, growth marketing, and SEO.

I believe in the power of education, curiosity, and willpower to take people out of their everyday routines and into fantastic places.

I also attribute my work style to my love of mountain trekking. The focus, planning, and physical and mental preparation taught me that arriving at the final destination is not so important, but the journey and your choices dictate your learnings and your experience, which is the path. In this sport, you can better understand your limits. In Design, you can find your limits too in your projects.

The Trekking and design have changed the way I see life, how we solve micro-daily-problems, step-by-step, and understand our environment.

A good professional design is an “invisible experience” or when the design is not perceived, which manages to foresee all the friction and pain of users.

Please feel free to contact me through LinkedIn. I’m always looking forward to an insightful conversation over coffee, or better yet, a trekking tour!
