Biography

José is an interaction designer & user researcher with 10 years of experience in the fields of news media, education, and real-estate. In 2003 he co-founded Con Vista Al Mar, a Design Studio focused on building web & mobile products. He consulted for YPF, Clarin, Nación Seguros, Educ.ar, and several startups in Buenos Aires and the US.

He usually helps small startups develop a sensibility for users needs. Away from long processes and formal research, he tries to cope business goals with just enough research & just enough design to better serve the company's needs.

Since 2011 he's been teaching courses on Interaction Design and User Interface Design. In 2014 he started teaching HCI and Usability at UTN Buenos Aires as part of the very first User Experience program in Argentina.
