Hey there,
I'm Nacho 👋

I believe we can shape technology to create a more just and inclusive world by enabling equal access to information.

I'm biased towards change, moving fast, testing things.

I'm sceptical of unfounded claims.

I’m determined to have a positive impact by pushing for technology that is people-centred, inclusive, and beneficial for our global society.

At work

I ask a lot of questions to understand the problems we want to solve and the goals we want to achieve. I then create high-fidelity wireframes that aim to address those goals. Those wireframes get turned into visual interfaces, sometimes with subtle motion effects, to be prototyped and tested with real people.

In Life

I’m originally from Madrid and moved to the UK 6 years ago to study
(sí, hablo español)

I was raised to love cooking and food, eating home-made, Mediterranean food everyday.

I truly believe that access to technology can change lives for the better. That’s why I volunteer teaching older folks and those with disabilities to use technology.

I love exploring my local area and traveling abroad
(27+ countries and counting)

My latest hobby is the surprisingly fascinating world of green wood spoon carving.

My ultimate experience has to be spending several weeks on the International Space Station, looking back at our Earth.

What I’m listening to

As a dyslexic, I struggle to read more than a couple of dozen pages a day but I can listen to podcast for hours. I try to keep a good mix between design, current affairs and other interests like science, technology, personal development and more.
