I'm a designer and creative technologist born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and based in New York. My skills range from ideation, interaction and visual design to rapid prototyping and testing. I'm passionate about designing experiences for emerging technologies.

I recently got my Master's degree the New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program, in which I've developed electronic jewelry and thereafter co-founded Jewliebots Inc. I'm also a Research Resident Fellow at ITP for the academic year of 2014-2015. Before, I've worked as interaction designer in companies such as Ydreams, Siemens and Intel Labs.

My work has been featured in conferences and festivals like Future Interfaces from NYC Media Lab and FILE São Paulo. I have publications in design/HCI conferences, such as CRIWG, Siggraph and IxDA South America, and I've been nominated for awards like EYE50 from C2-MTL and HATCH Groundbreaker.
