Sizzle Reel 2012 – utypedesign from U-Type on Vimeo.


I was born and raised in a family of architects, industrial designers and photographers. I’m a multi-faceted designer.

Nothing upsets me more than experiencing a product or service that does not do its job the best it can.

I believe that nothing man-made is perfect. For this reason, I continually strive for optimization and efficiency whether it be in products, systems, services, or even video games

I’m the kind of guy that knows the keyboard shortcuts in computer programs, approaches a red light at the right speed as to reach the intersection when it turns green, fixes rather than buying new, and designs design processes.

I have a passion for capturing light, rendering virtual worlds, hacking things together and exploring cities for hidden gems.
