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

I live in the red-light district in the centre of Amsterdam. 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 teach at the Design Academy Eindhoven as co-head (with Agata Jaworska) of the Design Curating & Writing master’s programme and thesis advisor in the Contextual Design and Social Design master’s programmes.

I am also a theory lecturer in the Graphic Media Design master’s programme at London College of Communication.
Previously, I was a thesis advisor in the Sandberg Instituut’s Materialisation in Art and Design master’s programme, and a lecturer in the Design Academy’s Man & Well-Being bachelor’s programme. I have also been an external examiner for the design department at Iceland University of the Arts.

From 2015 to 2018, I worked at Het Nieuwe Instituut as a design researcher in the R&D department.

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.)
