In a nutshell

A designer and humanist. Interested in combining human-centered design and adaptive technologies to create experiences that empower our creativity and well-being.

Having over 10 years of international industry experience I’ve led and contributed to a wide variety of internet service projects. I’ve done deep research, lots of design and I’ve written about personal data and predictive technologies.

For the past six years I worked as a startup co-founder and chief creative at Random, building a smart discovery engine for diverse media content.

My work has been covered by great people in The New York Times, Vice Motherboard, Lifehacker, PSFK, Gigaom, TechCrunch, Pando, Fast Company, Mashable, TNW, MIT Technology Review, New Scientist etc.

Feel free to ping me in Twitter or email, thanks!
