About me

I'm a multidisciplinary designer working at the intersection of experience design, digital & physical product design, and XR/spatial computing.

At Manyone, I've been leading teams and projects for several sectors and clients like Magic Leap, Warner Bros., Niantic, and Walmart / Store Nº8, focused on building UX strategies, creating future product visions, and designing end-to-end experiences by exploring emerging technologies.

I also love designing futuristic vehicles, concept cars, and spaceships of all kinds in my personal work exploring 2D, 3D, and VR tools.

I'm a Brazilian-born, Japanese descendant, currently living in Brooklyn, NY.
