A few years ago, I was failing 90% of my sales. 
I then decided to hack the delicate process of selling UX. This short book is the result of that process. 
It contains a field-tested questionnaire that has taken drastically down my [time spent] / [money earned] ratio ever since then I implemented it.
Available in Kindle Store and as a free pdf.

DemocracyOS Webapp

User Experience Design Strategy  //  Product-Service Design    

I have led a 5-person UX team to work in a conceptual approach on how re-create democracy in the 21th century.
We crafted the new version of DemocracyOS tool, ought to be used in parliaments, parties and decision-making institutions. 
Democracia en Red Foundation was our partner in this process to take DemocracyOS web version and take it into mobile. 
The result of this intense 6 month process? A fully functional prototype that allows users to get informed, join the conversation and vote on topics, just how they want their representatives to vote in congress.

Banks and financial institutions usually provide clients with less than few options to save money, offering very low returns based on obscure finance.
Neerva was the alternative, providing an easy way to save directly in bitcoins.
This short-lived project allowed me to use a full array of skills, from UX design to financial forecasting, from interaction design to business model creation.
We created a video pitch and a prototype, and presented it for Startup Chile 2014 edition.
