I research interactive technologies and interface design. My job is to come up with new ideas, concepts and research directions. Some of these ideas have become real products, others inspired new research directions, while many others simply satisfy my curiosity.

I am currently directing a technical program at Google ATAP and was at Disney and Sony before that. Please, see my bio for more details. You can also check recent news on my blog.
