About me

I am a designer & technologist who has worked on participative installations, immersive environments, data visualization, and various other kinds of projects involving custom software and hardware, web development, electronics, and fabrication. My inclination is to collaborate in transdisciplinary teams, bridging the gap between the design and technical sides of creative pursuits.

I have worked with studios such as Sosolimited, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, and Daily Tous Les Jours, creating work for the commercial (Google, Intel, Qualcomm), public (cities of Montréal, Boston, San Diego), and art sectors.

I’ve also led various workshops at places like the Interactive Telecommunications Program’s summer camp, at New York University. Participating in design & programming meetups is also something I enjoy, as I co-created one in San Diego for exploring artistic expression through programming. In recent years, I’ve attended conferences such as INST-INT, OpenVis Conf, and d3.unconf. And when time permits, I exhibit my work in galleries.
