On the subject of me...
I am Juliano Moreira Dasilva, residing in Minneapolis, MN. Before moving to Minnesota, I lived in Boston for 12 years, and was raised in Petrolina, PE, Brazil until my 19th birthday. At 19 years old, I migrated to United States to pursue a career in Graphic Design.
I’m a designer working for the web. My design instincts are inherited from print design, photography and typography. I’m passionate about design and technology in general. I’m also a Geek who loves the UNIX platform. I was a Geek Squad Agent for Geek Squad for several years before entering into the web as an engineer.
I’m a Christian (raised Baptist) who strongly believes in maintaining a good relationship with God is a must. The verse that keeps me going with perseverance is from James 1:2-5:
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let the perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
What I do
I’m currently front-end developer/designer for bestbuy.com. Prior to this role, I was the lead UX/UI designer for Best Buy Retail Tools team where I was involved in designing major tools for the corporation. I also worked for a publishing company as graphic designer and as freelance web designer in the Boston area.
What I enjoy doing
It’s obvious I enjoy designing things myself, but I also love great design elsewhere. I'm really passionate about design and technology in general. I enjoy playing around with Linux(Ubuntu Server), hacking apache, setting up networks, file sharing servers and replacing a Play Station 3 fan when it stops working. I also invest most of time reading books, blogs and the Bible. I love design and I believe design will change the world. I also spend a good chunk of my time following the Boston Red Sox and Boston Celtics.
