that's me
Hi, my name is Michele Pasin.

I am an information architect and digital product manager. I make a living by helping people design, structure and implement large information spaces.

I specialize in areas like information design, data modeling, digital humanities, ontology engineering and semantic technologies. I have several years of experience with web technologies and enjoy developing prototypes and data visualizations using Python and D3.

I also love art, music and philosophy, so I am particularly fascinated by the opportunity of exploring the possible intersections of those areas with modern digital technology.

For more details on my background, see my CV on LinkedIn. If you want to get in touch, you are very welcome to drop me a line or leave a comment on my blog. I'm always open to discussing innovative projects & collaborations, especially in front of a good beer!
