Portfolio

Some of the projects I have been a part of.

Interests

01

Tech to enhance creativity

How can AI/ML/VR/AR and other upcoming technologies transform how we work in the creative fields? How can we increase the time spent in the creativity zone and reduce repetitive tasks?

02

Respectable tech solutions

Transparent data and privacy policies. Business models not centred around profiling users. How to use generalized open anonymous data. Develop solutions focusing on peoples goal rather than being built to conquer their attention. Create digital bikes for the brain.

03

Alternative interaction

I love my tech products. They help me bring my ideas to life and enables me to share my creations with the work. I, however, hate sitting at a desk and have to impress myself through mouse and keyboard. How can we rethink how we can enable technology to be our co-creating partners to give a more enjoyable/fun interaction with the digital creation process?
