As humans, we love that high five or that smile, or that moment in traffic where someone lets you go in front of them. This is part of what makes being a designer so great for me. I see interaction design as an opportunity to do what I love doing and knowing that it’s meaningful for a bunch of other people.
I was born in Belgium, but actually grew up in a place called Newton, Massachusetts. It's a nice place with a lot of snow, and history, and a bunch of super smart smarty-pants. But surprisingly some talent emerged from there as well which includes Matt Damon, Amy Poehler and Matt Leblanc. After high school I moved to Israel for a few years and then in 2009 my brother Omer, my dad Shimon, my sister Vered and I started a waffle restaurant in Oregon called Off The Waffle
. This was a pretty wild ride. The business quickly expanded to three locations and 50+ employees, and I matured a lot in a very short amount of time.
So...this is the part of the story where you come in! I'd love to hear what you're up to
I've had a lot of adventures including (not limited to) having kidney stones in a Bolivian jungle.
I love to share the knowledge that I've learned so far with up and coming designers.
The sound of music
I play blues harmonica and a bit of drums. I love anything from gospel to the Grateful Dead.
Mostly reading non-fiction and historical fiction. Right now I am reading Pillars of the Earth.
I have a 2008 Suzuki Jimny which I adore, and I love exploring the edges of nature when I can.
Sport and spirit
I try to be present with my body and soul by running, snorkelling, swimming laps or just meditating.
