I am a designer, programmer and maker that works in the intersection of physical and digital mediums employing technology for creative expression.
In some projects I have explored digital / physical interaction, working with products and installations to create unique experiences with data and code – Project Jacquard, Project Bloks, Assembly of Youth, Pachube.
In other projects I have explored the Internet as a medium for platforms that enable collaboration to create unique forms of expression – Exquisite Clock, Colors Online, Dev Art, Happy Party, Kaiser Chiefs – Make your Own Album, Jam With Chrome.
I hold a Bachelor in Advertising and Publicity from UNIBH University Center in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. A Master Degree in Interactive Media from Goldsmiths University of London and currently completing a second Master degree in Science at the MIT Media Lab. I also was a grant holder at FABRICA (Benetton’s center for Research in Communication in Italy).
After working for Google Creative Lab for the past 5 years, I am currently pursing a second masters degree and work as research assistant in the Tangible Media Group at MIT Media Lab.
