As a senior industrial and interaction freelance designer, I lead programs from user research, ideation, iteration to regulatory preparation.
Previously design direction at one of the best design consultancy of San Francisco, I have worked in multi-disciplinary teams including ID/UX/UI and graphic designers, ME/EE engineers, strategist and business professionals.
I tackle a variety of projects in the future of technology and electronics, medical devices and environments, as well as tableware, footwear, work environments. I led more than 15 products that went to market.
I am passionate about design and people, I seek challenges in medical and social impact related problems where design can improve and save lives.
AREAS OF FOCUS
BRINGING CONSUMER PRODUCT LOOK & FEEL INTO HEALTHCARE ECOSYSTEMS
The medical industry is at the edge of its revolution, with seven years working in consumer electronics for leading companies such as Google and Skype. I am bringing the sensitivity and elegance into details to the medical industry for developing refined products and experiences integrated into everyday lifestyle and consumer expectations.
BLENDING PHYSICAL AND DIGITAL INTO ONE COMPREHENSIVE EXPERIENCE
Nowadays, the information the user get on the screen is as important as the ergonomics of the actual device. Per my dual experience of being an industrial and interaction designer, I am blending those two worlds for the best smooth experience.
TACKLING PROJECTS WITH IMPACT
Being a designer is the chance to create a better future, I am embracing projects that have a wider impact on human wellbeing and social awareness, especially interested in children rights. As well as how art can gather community and inspire better behaviors.
