ABOUT ME

I am a passionate Designer and Musician with a degree in Maths & Computer Sciences and more than 15 years of experience. My background in Design (Mobile, Interaction, Product, UI/UX Design), Product Development, Project Coordination and Innovation allowed me to contribute to the success of many companies i worked with.

I have a proven track record of successfully delivered projects, from concept to production, for diverse corporations and start-up ventures. As the Founder/CTO/Product Designer of EDIGMA.COM and DISPLAX.COM, two awarded companies, I coordinated, for over 10 years, a team of more than 40 persons out of 67, from programmers, researchers, content managers to a full team of designers and designed/installed projects all around the globe.

By working closely with staff and communicating project goals and work plans, I completed the delivery of countless projects and won, in the process, several patents and awards. In addition, my expertise in hardware/software allied to creative problem solving skills made the different in many projects i was involved.
