About me (Natalia Rey, Interaction Designer)
 
Introduction
I'm an Interaction Designer. I have more than 7 years of experience in this role.
I started as a web designer in Soho, a company established in Uruguay and Chile.

User Experience was an essential issue for them because most of their works were related with banks and government web sites.

In 2006 I become an Usability Consultant (with lots of courses in Chile and Spain) and in 2007 I moved to live in Chile to be an Usability Expert Consultant of the Ministry of Finance during 1 year (by Soho).

Note: Also, I worked as a freelancer UX, giving usability support to different kind of enterprises like Sodimac, Mybestplay (by Multiplica) and
URUIT.

MOBILE FIRST: In 2009 I started to study all about mobile devices, and in 2010 I searched for a job focused on mobile across all platforms in Europe.

In August, 2010, I moved on to Ireland with my family to work for Avego as a
Interaction Designer, creating new apps, and everything related to our users.

At the moment, I'm very focused on mobile with experience in iPhone, Android and Windows Phone 7, and tablets apps.

I am very good at:

Professional Education
I'm licenced in Graphic Design and Multimedia (2001) in ORT Uruguay University, (4 years).

Also I studied Fine Arts in National School of Fine Arts (2001) in Montevideo, Uruguay, (3 years).

After a few years of working as a web designer I studied Usability & Accessibility in Murcia's University.
