Join Couchsurfing to see Michael’s full profile. It’s free!
Finding creative ways of empowering communities to connect and become active in their future while maintaining the importance of their history and culture.
I graduated from NYU studying interactive telecommunication (http://itp.nyu.edu). I am especially interested in interactive environments that connect our physical world to the computer(virtual) world through various forms of sensing and interaction.
I hope to use my creations to encourage and make people aware of how to live more sustainability. I would also like to create technology that engages and inspires the community to use technology for social and environmental justice.
Try everything once(well... almost everything)
