Hi, I’m Desi.

Desi GonzalezI design digital experiences for culture and learning. My work lies at the intersection of art and technology.

I currently live in Pittsburgh, where I lead digital strategy at the Andy Warhol Museum. There, I spearhead large-scale technology projects that connect audiences to Warhol’s life in new and innovative ways, through channels such as interactive gallery experiences, mobile applications, and websites.

Before that, I worked at an IDEO-led human-centered design studio called La Victoria Lab in Peru, developed interpretive experiences at the Museum of Modern Art, and managed a kids website at the Whitney Museum of American Art. My writing has been featured in publications including Art in America, Art Papers, Indiewire, and The Brooklyn Rail. I’ve been invited to speak about art, design, and technology at events held by organizations including Google Design and We Are Museums and in places as near as New York and as far as Riga, Latvia. I currently serve on the board of MCN, the Museum Computer Network.

I have a B.A. in linguistics and art history from Emory University and an M.S. in comparative media studies from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I think words and pictures are pretty rad.
