I'm a Senior Interaction designer working as freelance consultant and planting futures at Automato. I design real and fictional products and experiences to explore and anticipate the implications of technology leaking in our everyday life.
In the last 4 years I worked at frog, jumping around fortune 500 clients and small startups, between design research, product innovation and big delivery projects and across Europe, Asia and Australia.
I started as a product designer in Italy to then realize that I preferred sensors to chairs. Delft University of Technology tells i'm a design engineer, but i mostly played with tangible interfaces, interactive spaces and generative architecture.
Some time ago I tried to install an "addicted toaster" in the office of the british prime minister with Haque Design Research and i convince students to do similar things at CIID, SUPSI ,Tongji University and Academy of Fine arts
