I work in-between two worlds traditionally apart. I am a designer and a developer, which is challenging but extremely satisfying - it gives me a better sense of context and it has enabled me to master the skills of each part of the creation process. I am passionate about aesthetics, art and innovative design, but also enjoy a good geeky conversation and learning new frameworks and libraries.
My original background is in fine arts, painting and printmaking, which might explain my love for culture in any form or medium, but particularly visual arts and theater. As a matter of fact, I feel honored to have worked with key cultural institutions like the Opera House of Barcelona and Unitel Classica, a leading European TV channel of classical music. At the same time, years of work as a graphic designer in marketing and advertising have shaped my client-facing skills and given me the ability to design products for mass-consumption.
I am currently a Graphics and Multimedia Editor at The New York Times. I design and develop featured stories and interactive tools for the newspaper digital edition. Previously, I held the title of Senior UI developer & designer at Local Projects, an award-winning design firm specialized in the creation of interactive media for museums and public spaces. During my time at Local Projects, I led UI development and oversaw the design of numerous projects for most of the studio's major clients, such as the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, the National Museum of American Jewish History and the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial.
