hello, my name is
mauricio giraldo arteaga
i write code for the new york public library, lately working on making ebook borrowing not suck, while also automating map vectorizing with some extra volunteer help. i have also done some funky stuff with stereographs and restaurant menus.
i studied industrial design (’00) at universidad de los andes (bogotá, colombia) and then went on to found a web development company where i was active from 2000 through 2007. i left and founded pingpong estudio which was receiving clients until 2010 when i decided to pursue carnegie mellon university’s master of human-computer interaction (’11). i’ve been in new york city since graduating.
this is a not-very-recent portfolio (as of 2013, to be improved, as is any portfolio ☺︎) but mostly shows that i enjoy playing with code, objects and all things interactive. i've also done a few experimental ios apps: movepix (2015), edda (2015), bitpix (2012), and pagans (2010).
