Husam Machlovi Product Design

What I'm doing now

I’m residing in New York City where I spend most of my time developing With Pulp.

My focus is on ensuring our clients, creative and technology teams have everything they need to do their best work together.

Every now and then I find myself designing and coding. And that’s always fun.

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 where I try to distill the concepts I’m learning into the smallest and pithiest pieces. You can read my poetry on Medium.
