Pleased to meet you
I’m a User Experience Designer based in London, and I believe that Design is all about coming together to solve human problems.
I’ve been here for a few years now, but I’m originally from Portugal. This means my accent might change from British to Canadian or American at a moment’s notice, which is a lot of fun.
I enjoy reading comic books and playing Dungeons and Dragons, like the nerd I am. I am also almost always up for a pint and a chat down the pub.

What others say about me
I’ve worked with Goncalo at Aviva on a couple of projects. Goncalo designed experiences to simplify complex financial problems, such as helping people understand how their pensions work or designing a tool to show much money they would have annually in retirement, which we tested in the lab to get feedback. I’ve also mentored Goncalo when he conducted user testing. He’s a quicker learner, wrote excellent discussion guides, moderated extremely well, and produces reports with actionable findings. Goncalo will be an asset to any team, as he’s smart, a good teammate and fun to work with.
Gonçalo is a professional committed to finding solutions. His Master’s degree in Graphic Design together with his vast coding knowledge makes him stand out in an increasingly demanding market. Aside from his professional skills, his thoughtfulness and creativity are outstanding sides in his personality.
