During the past two decades, I've helped create products and services that change the way people live and interact all around the world. I co-founded the IxDA Interaction Awards and I'm currently co-founder & CEO of Jauntful.
I live in San Francisco… but most of the time, my head is in the cloud.
I have spoken at international universities and conferences including Lift Asia, UPA international conference, Seoul National University, AIGA National Design Conference, and Kyoorius DesignYatra and taught courses at California College of the Arts, ENSCI - Les Ateliers, and CEDIM Master in Business Innovation.
