Hi there,  I'm Mariana.

I'm a hybrid software engineer and design researcher. I currently live in the Scottish Highlands ⛰️

I believe good user experience starts at the software architecture and ends with the pixels on the screen. I design systems and interactions holistically, coordinate people and bits of software, and build interesting and useful things.

I seek to work on tools that help people work better, whether that's data visualisation, multi-channel communication, or, more recently, computer-aided design. I look to work with and for organisations that prioritise sustainability, social responsibility, equality, and making the world a better place. If that sounds like you and you'd like to work together, drop me a note.


When I'm not building software, I'm probably trying to get back to one of the many hobbies I started but don't do frequently enough. Among many others, I like baking, but for the life of me I can't follow a recipe to the letter (but things still come out ok most of the time I'm told!), I have a wee veg garden, help look after a woodland, and dabble in cross stitching, pixelling and green woodworking.
