I am a designer and design strategist working in consumer technology, systems, and innovation.

Co-founder and CPO at Phare Labs


My goal is to use technology to create products that trigger emotions and have a positive impact in humans and the planet.

As creatives, our practice is constantly being redefined and understood under new lenses, brought by exposure to new experiences, collaborations, and unknown contexts.
I understand the product as a medium to enable an interaction and an experience. The product becomes dispensable - the best interface is no interface - and the human, as well as the environment, lead the rationale behind the decisions we make as designers. I look for a more holistic and transdisciplinary approach to problems, acknowledging the complexity of systems we are part of and recognizing its uncertainty and unpredictability.
