As Interaction Designer and consultant, I have worked for companies worldwide. The below include some of the clients for which I envisioned and prototyped products, explored new interaction paradigms and visualised and made tangible future visions.


Design Director based in Oakland CA.
Background in Industrial and Interaction Design.

I love to explore ideas, materials, technologies. Something I do more targeted as part of my professional work, and more freely and aimlessly in my personal time. I find that both practices greatly influence and inspire one another. Some impressions of more and less aimless explorations in the video below.
