My practice is based in digital product design, qualitative user experience research and software engineering. I build software that seeks to improve human communication and sensing, often starting with conceptualization, positioning and prototyping.
I have often focused on crowdsourcing and civic tech. Lately I have a particular interest in human health and climate.
I like working on design systems and developer experience. In general I love to have ideas and to help others think bigger, while also zooming in to reason about systems at multiple scales.
How can we expand human capacity to help us deal with critical social and environmental problems?
How can we manage complexity with ethical responsibility? How can we make our approach more inclusive, accountable and humane?
How can we visualize our landscape to make better decisions within it? What are the missing pieces and overlooked opportunity in emerging system?
I’m super grateful to have been invited to speak at venues such as RightsCon, Global Fact, the Online News Association, DrupalCon, the International CrisisMappers Conference, the AIGA, SXSW, the African News Innovation Challenge, the Nonprofit Technology Conference, the NYU Interactive Telecommunications Program and Stanford University.
