I began working in publishing in 2004 as an assistant editor at XXI Architecture and Design Magazine. In 2006 I became the industrial design editor of the magazine, a role that allowed me to draw on the knowledge and expertise that I gained from my undergraduate degree in industrial design. In that role, I worked with contributing writers from all around the world, commissioning and editing their reviews of architecture and design events and exhibitions. During my time at XXI, I extended the magazine’s network of contributing writers and columnists. At XXI, also I made interviews with locally and/or internationally known product designers.
Also, seeking opportunities to unite my current profession and interests with my previous professional experience and education, I wrote for PLSN magazine as a contributor and made interviews with lighting designers.
I got the opportunity to talk with Clifton Taylor on being the lighting director of "Fall for Dance" festival and accommodating choreographers and lighting designers from all around the world in the best possible way that can happen in a festival. With Edmond Deraedt, we talked about touring with a rock band and feeling each new venue, and responding to the space and the music in new ways each time. With Adam Frank and Alex Koch, we focused on collaborative design process between lighting and projection for Mr Goodbar. With Mark Coniglio, the creator of the software Isadora and the artistic director of Troika Ranch, and lighting designer David Tirosh we talked about the company's interdisciplinary dance piece Loopdiver and the design process behind it, in addition to performing arts and technology relationship.
