About this site

Artist & Multidisciplinary Designer based in Ocean Park, California.

This site acts as a personal bookmark of inspiration, knowledge and random things I find which help me advance my knowledge as a creative. Posts are saved as a reference point when information is needed. Knowledge is king. I currently work as a Senior Design Director focusing on User Experience and User Interfaces while driving future Product Visions for a great technology company. In my free time I combine art with technology to create rich interactive installations focused on 80’s style experiences.

Gravity - 3D Sketching. Gravity is a tool for creatives to quickly sketch their ideas in 3D space using immersive augmented reality. A pen and a pad specifically designed for sketching in the augmented environment. Free from any screen or computer, Gravity allows you to focus on what really matters, developing your ideas in an intuitive way. As you start to draw, objects will take shape in front of you. Through the landing pad controls, you can adjust the plane in which you sketch, giving volume to your creation. With augmented reality glasses, Gravity reinvents how you and your collaborators visualize and contribute to each other’s ideas. The project started with a strong belief: the tools that are commonly used for drawing, designing and making things in 3D limit people’s ability to bring their ideas to reality. Through numerous prototypes, tests and iterations, we created Gravity as a simple and engaging tool that will shape a new wave of 3D creation. Source

New bionics that let us run, climb and dance. Hugh Herr is building the next generation of bionic limbs, robotic prosthetics inspired by nature’s own designs. Herr lost both legs in a climbing accident 30 years ago; now, as the head of the MIT Media Lab’s Biomechatronics group, he shows his incredible technology in a talk that’s both technical and deeply personal — with the help of ballroom dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis, who lost her left leg in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, and performs again for the first time on the TED stage.

Self-Designed Prosthetic Knee for Extreme Sports

The video is a bit too gimmicky, awesome and narcisstic. But it tells an incredible story. 

Edge Factor’s production Metal & Flesh features the incredibly inspiring story of snocross and motocross champion, Mike Schultz. After a tragic accident that claimed his left leg, Mike was faced with his biggest challenged yet: How could he continue to pursue his career in action sports and fulfill his dreams, when he couldn’t stand with 2 legs? Metal & Flesh tells how Mike turned his loss into victory, and through manufacturing, is powerfully impacting lives of other challenged athletes. Source
