Husam Machlovi Product Design

What I'm doing now

I’m home in New York City.

Currently, I have a few on-going projects. All of which I really enjoy.

I spend several hours every day building my business, With Pulp. As we’re a small team, my activities vary day by day and encompass client and project management, programming, design and accounting.

In the evenings, I’m teaching a Product Design course at the City University of New York.

Teaching’s something I’ve wanted to do since I was in college. And now I have this amazing opportunity to teach a subject I’m very passionate about. And the students are awesome! All are really kind, smart and earnest. Couldn’t ask for a better class.

Writing’s a big part of my life. It’s the one hobby I remember practicing since I was 9 years old, and I’m grateful that it’s a regular part of my life.

Every day I write something, whether that’s a to-do list, journal entry or article. Writing helps me make sense of any mess. Apple’s Notes app is my go-to tool.

I’m working on an interaction design book, “Psychology of UX”. I got the idea as an article I wrote about motivation within UX became super popular on a top UX publication. You can read it here.

Poetry’s a big part of current life too. I started writing poetry when I was 11, and over the past year I’ve rediscovered my passion for it.

I’ve been very fasincated with eastern spirituality, especially Zen Buddhism and Hinduism. Poetry has been a great way for me to make sense of the concepts I’m learning. I play this game with myself where I try to distill the concepts I’m learning into the smallest and pithiest pieces. You can read my poetry on Medium.
