Adjunct Professor of Graphic Design at the Rhode Island School of Design
Daniel designs experiences by listening closely to users. He got his start in design by making things with sound such as music, film, objects, and spaces. After a few years based in Rio de Janeiro, Daniel made his way back to New York where he attended NYU’s ITP program and the Whitney Independent Study program. Once back, he ran his own studio, which produced a wide range of work with an emphasis on experiential and sound design.
Daniel has had the privilege of designing with diverse groups of people, places, and things. Recent clients include Google, IBM, Under Armour, Vito Acconci, Maya Lin, Errol Morris, Todd Solondz, Chase, the Cooper Hewitt Museum, and Domus magazine. After his recent work as the director of user experience design at Droga5 in New York, Daniel is now the founder of a startup for climate change. When he isn’t designing, he likes to ride his bicycle.
