About me

Hey there, I’m Carlos. I am originally from Mexico City. My expertise revolves around design, visual communications, and qualitative research. I’ve worked with multidisciplinary teams for over four years leading digital engagements, workshops, serious games, and experiential simulations. Most recently, I am pursuing a PhD in human-computer interaction (HCI) under the supervision of Dr Marta Cecchinato and Dr John Rooksby at Northumbria University. My research focuses on designing worker-centred solutions in the freelance gig economy.

Outside of my professional life, I love travelling, cooking (often too spicy food), and role-playing games (right now curating a Savage-Worlds campaign). I co-founded Chipotles and Chill, a creative outlet promoting mindful travel experiences.
