I’m not especially old. I haven’t been particularly productive either. Nevertheless, every time I got a request for references, a curriculum vitae, a portfolio, a list of projects, I struggled. I had to go through resumes who were never up to date, browse two and often more hard disks, search the internet for references and links. In many cases, I realised after sending the material that potentially relevant items were missing.

The purpose of this blog is to serve as an archive and a reference source of my work. It will also be a platform for sharing some of the experiences, learnings and findings of the work carried out during these past 20 years in pure and applied cognitive science; system, product and service design.

I’m sure sharing this material will lead to new stimulating conversations.
