I’m a licensed architect, software developer and co-founder of NUMENA, a creative studio that designs both virtual and physical spaces.
My theoretical work lies at the intersection of immersive technologies, philosophy and architecture. I have a particular interest in spatial behaviour, embodied cognition and the perception of time & space.
