About & Contact

I am a graphic designer, lecturer and digital media researcher. I work in a variety of fields, such as publishing, new media, corporate identity, interactive art and printmaking. My research is focused on the fundamentals of visual language, in a constant effort to reach a deeper understanding of the rules in non-verbal communication.
