I am a software engineer by trade, and a tech, art, and design enthusiast at heart.
I have helped design and build distributed, resilient systems for startups, agencies, and enterprise partners in the financial, education and public sectors.
My design philosophy draws upon the legacy of modernism. I approach engineering challenges in a pragmatic and empathetic fashion that aims to distill conceptual insights into concrete solutions. Above all, I keep people (partners, collaborators, and end users) first.
As an award-winning theorist and historian of design, I've lectured, spoken and taught at multiple institutions throughout the world, including at Harvard, Columbia, NYU and Princeton universities.
I am the author of essays, reviews, and book chapters, and of Spectacular Mexico: Design, Propaganda and the 1968 Olympics (2014). In the book, I examine the ways in which design operated as a tool for propaganda and urban transformation in the context of the 1968 Summer Olympics celebrated in Mexico City.
