|I'm a Design strategist, UX expert, and practical dreamer focusing on product innovation for over 15 years. My interest lies in
the creation of experience platforms that change the way people act and
perceive their actions.
I explore ways where existing social interactions and behaviors can be supported (or transformed) by technology and be better facilitated through new products and services.
I spent the last five years in Microsoft thinking about, and designing for the future of productivity in its broadest sense, first at Office labs – a bleeding edge Technology + Design team, and then on a strategy team.
In 1999 I co-founded and managed one of the first Digital Product Design Agencies in Israel – Max. Interactive. Max. Interactive provided comprehensive solutions to companies - coupling user centered design methods with business focused approach to create products that people love and companies value.
My career path has also led me to be a leading creative force in the Start-up trenches where I happily served, and to the winding roads of designing products and creating product strategies as a solo consultant.
I'm open to speaking opportunities, and would love to connect with people on the innovation front.

lives are increasingly becoming more flexible, connected and mobile.
We were asked to create an installation for Fjord's office
space that will communicate the theme of mobility and its influence
on people’s lives.
PEOPLE+ is an installation which exposes flows of communication, and stresses the fact that mobile communication expands the boundaries of a person and augments the distances one can reach.

My research looked at behaviors
within groups of teenagers and explored how mobile communication technologies
can come into play in meaningful ways in that context.
