About Izabel

Co-founded a technology startup where I was the Chief Experience Officer. Founded a design agency. Acted as design advisor for a startup in Palo Alto.

11 years hands on software design on all form factors; have been designing for native mobile since 2008. I'm a hybrid unicorn type that can lead a design team, define the user experience of a product & customer experience for a company, and also do hands on design work. I can do many things, and wear many hats.

As for my hands on capabilities, I'm a T shaped designer that can add value anywhere in the design lifecycle; a focus on interaction.

Active speaker and startup mentor on design thinking and design techniques for non-designers. Mentor and coach for junior designers. I love staying involved in the larger startup and design community.

Because of my startup experience and the variety of large and small companies I've been at, I have a unique expertise on all the moving parts that need to come together to ship products, to go from an idea to something tangible. I put the rubber to the road so to speak. Specifically, I accel at how to grow design teams and how design/PM/and Eng can best collaborate to build stuff.

I'm interested in starting a design agency with another designer; or joining an existing startup as a design co-founder. Finding the right people and idea is key.
