ABOUT



I am a multidisciplinary interaction designer, programmer, and maker that works at the intersection of physical and digital employing technology for creative expression. In the past 15 years I have designed, prototyped and launched number of projects including NSynth Super, Project Jacquard, Project Bloks, Assembly of Youth, whilst at Google Creative Lab.

Between 2018-2020 I was a researcher at Tangible Media Group at MIT Media Lab focused on HCI (human-computer-interaction) where I developed novel materials and sensing technologies. In 2008 was grant holder at FABRICA (Benetton’s research center for communication in Italy) and worked at creative agencies including Poke London and Wieden+Kennedy.

My practice involves research and development of technology to demonstrate its potential to the end user. I employ a thinking by making philosophy to my work combining my creative and technical skills to explore concepts through programming, rapid prototyping and fabrication. I enjoy being involved in all stages of a project from creative ideation, research, interaction design and technical development.

I hold a Bachelor in Arts from UNIBH University Center in Belo Horizonte, Brazil (2001). A Master in Arts in Interactive Media from the Goldsmiths University of London (2008) and Master in Science at the MIT Media Lab (2020).
