I’m a cyber-realist with a over a decade of experience in communication. Since 2015, cybersecurity became my home.

I jumped at the opportunity to do work that I deeply care about and learn from smart, kind, and generous people.

Growing in cybersecurity made my life richer and opened my mind and heart. Now I strive to help others see these possibilities and act on them through meaningful content.

I’m a designer and developer with a strong interest in privacy and ethics. I work at Scruples, a collaborative ethical design studio that helps clients make better decisions.

Beyond my work, I also spread awareness of privacy and surveillance capitalism issues through my writing and side projects:

  • No To Spy Pixels – a campaign to help people become aware of email tracking pixels and encourage them to take action.
  • Below Radar – a community for freelancers and small business owners who want to reduce their reliance on Facebook, Google and techniques that fuel surveillance capitalism.
