Join us at ITP in welcoming Alumni Rui Pereira and Kuan Huang!
We recognize that navigating life after ITP graduation can be challenging for ITP's alums -- so we have invited two successful ITP graduates to share their stories and address questions. International students maybe be particularly interested in this event as both alumni are international graduates!
Rui Pereira is from Portugal and is an adjunct faculty member at ITP.
Since an early age Rui has enjoyed taking things apart to build new toys. In the past Rui has built his instruments for Vj’ing, worked as an Interaction Designer for IDEO, collaborated in low-cost, open source eye-tracking devices and led R&D at Havas Innovation Lab. He is currently a Creative Technologist at Google’s The ZOO, a creative think tank for brands and agencies.
