This site displays both independent projects and commercial work. In the past three and half years I have been developing interactive projects, from websites to physical interfaces and participatory events.
Professionally, my experience ranges from Interaction Design work for agencies like
Boot Studio in Panama City and Renegade Marketing Group to teaching technology programs focusing on electronics and wearable technology at Eyebeam Atelier and video production at Vision Education.
Before being re-incarnated as an interaction designer, I received a bachelor's degree in Architecture from The Catholic University of American in Washington, DC. During my life as an Architect, I worked for the award-wining studio Division1 Architects in Washington, DC.
The need for a faster medium that will push my creativity and will engage others drove me towards interaction design. Now I am fulfilling my goals as an Information Architect and as a User-experience designer. Currently I am working as an Interaction Designer at R/GA in New York City.
Fueling my passion for interactive design are my personal interests in participation, personal expression, and style. I am excited by creating experiences that empower individuals to communicate and express themselves. Fashion is a huge influence in my work because I see a strong parallel between its cycles and technological progress. I believe that both fields could enrich each others methods. The emergence of participation as a vehicle of self-expression in public communication is a fascinating and important direction I am committed to exploring in my work. This is evident in the DIY events and projects I have lead, like Hacking Couture workshops where fashion consumers become the designers.
