What's the most interesting thing about UX for you?

Thinking about people and working with them, observing their lifestyles and behaviors and spotting differences between countries and cultures.

What's your favorite book?

“Il cavaliere rampante” by Italo Calvino, where the main character looks for a radical overhaul of his perspective (and life) to be truly happy, although he has to give up many things.

What's your favorite foreign dish?

Tacos! I visited Mexico three times for different projects, and I absolutely felt in love with the local cuisine. But the tacos… exceed everything! You can fill them as you wish, eat them with your hands and they are an explosion of flavor!
