I am a writer and researcher in the extended field of design (including architecture, visual culture, technology, and fashion).

I live in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. I was born in Israel and grew up near Washington, D.C. I studied architecture at the University of Virginia and contextual design at the Design Academy Eindhoven.

I work at Het Nieuwe Instituut as a design researcher in the R&D department.

I teach at the Design Academy Eindhoven as a thesis advisor in the Contextual Design and Social Design master’s programmes.
Previously, I was a lecturer in Critical Perspectives & Methodologies on the Graphic Media Design master’s programme at London College of Communication; a thesis advisor at the Sandberg Instituut’s Materialisation in Art and Design master’s programme; and and a lecturer in the Design Curating and Writing master’s programme and the Man & Well-Being bachelor’s programme..

From 2014 to 2017, I was one of the organisers for the annual exhibition Atelier Clerici at the Salone del Mobile in Milan.

In 2013, Joseph Grima and I founded the design research studio Space Caviar in Genoa. (Since 2016, I am sadly a dormant member.)
