ABOUT

I’m a San Francisco based experience designer, with a deep background in motion design, filmmaking, and storytelling. I make interactive installations and exhibits, integrated with web and mobile experiences for museums, brands and public art.

In recent years my works focus on helping cultural and commercial organizations to tell their story through integration of immersive and interactive environments with digital strategy for web, mobile and social media to extend those experiences into an ongoing conversation with visitors.
In my current role as Director of Experience and Interaction Design at G&A, I lead creative and development teams through the design and execution of content-rich exhibits and experiences for museums, brands and corporations.

My path started in motion graphics, working with boutique studios in New-York as an independent designer, animator and art-director. This experience brings a great sense of motion and cinematic storytelling to any of my interactive projects.
In personal projects, I explore the use of code and custom software to generate responsive animations, displayed in physical environments that break the perceived boundaries between screens, and the context around them. My works were presented in art galleries, digital art festivals and featured in blogs and magazines.
Along the way I was offered to join ITP at NYU as an adjunct professor, where I teach about animation in the context of interactive and new-media projects.

I hold a Masters degree from ITP  (Interactive Telecommunication Program) at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, and a Bachelors degree from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem.

When not in digital domain, I’m an avid musician and guitarist, and also like to practice Aikido, a traditional Japanese martial art.
