I'm a digital designer and technologist with more than 15 years of experience working on interactive projects for web, mobile and site-specific installations. I have extensive experience working with highly prestigious companies and cultural institutions such as The New York Times, The National September 11 Memorial Museum, The Eisenhower Memorial, The National Museum of American Jewish History, The New York City's office for Media and Entertainment and the Liceu Opera House in Barcelona. My work has been recognized with major awards in the industry such as a Cannes Golden Lion, a World Press Photo Multimedia Award, the National Design Award, an AAM Muse Award, an AIGA award, Webbies and Society of News Design awards among others.

I love problem-solving and get very excited with everything related to design, technology and storytelling. I’m always looking forward to hearing about new ideas and projects in the field.
