About me

I have always been fascinated by the possibility of intersecting those different fields like design, computer technologies, music, arts… that is, the world of interaction between the human gesture and the device. Both aspects are important to me: the object, the product, and also the performance, the process of creating something that amazes, and enhances one’s awareness of the hidden life of things.

All this kindles my curiosity towards what stands ‘behind the scene’ of this new world: who and what makes possible the wonders created by the interaction design – being this an object or just an element of visual design – and how different approaches operate new technologies in order to satisfy the needs and desires of everyone’s daily life.

Education

Strengths
I have experience in the whole range of the interaction design processes: user research, brainstorming, concept development. My recent experience in a H-art, a service design agency, has been especially useful in acquiring fluency in the technical aspects of design strategy and user experience. I am also strong in conceiving a graphic idea and developing it through different prototyping tactics, such as building physical objects as well as making video simulations.
