Self Employed

iOS Cowboy

Every now and then I design and develop my own iOS applications in close collaboration with graphic designers and other programmers;

Some of them have been featured in the iTunes Cover and some others have been absolute failures. Nonetheless, I've acquired significant experience in the end-to-end process of developing an application and offering it to customers in a virtual store. This experience includes mainly: innovation, planing, user interface design and marketing.

As a private contractor, I've developed interactive applications for marketing campaigns of brands like Heineken and Nielsen Media Research.
