hello, my name is
mauricio giraldo arteaga
i write code for the new york public library labs, 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.
if you want to see me, there is a video of the presentation i did at openvisconf, a data visualization conference where i shared the stage with awesome people from many fields, in april 2014. see the slides here.
there is also an old site (2006) which has some more info in case you are curious.
