Alexandre Fernandes Filho, Founding Director
I’m a cultural entrepreneur driven by social and environmental justice. As one of the leaders of the Museu do Amanha, in Rio de Janeiro, I collaborated with the development of several inclusive educational experiences that informed, inspired and invited people to act for a more prosperous and sustainable future. I established MOTI with the goal of scaling up these experiences, engaging and empowering even more people through different projects and partnerships around the world.
Bruna Baffa, Strategy Director
I’m a business developer and creative strategist who’s spent over a decade honing my experience in innovation and project development around the world. I've been developing projects in cultural studies, trend forecasting, education, sustainability, creative management, and leadership. Before joining MoTI as a Strategy Director, I was the Managing Director for Box1824 in New York, where I oversaw research projects investigating youth culture in various regions of the world. Before then, I was Head of Innovation for AKQA São Paulo, Executive Producer at Grupo Conspiração, and Digital Content Coordinator for Petrobras.
Isaque Seneda, Design & Strategy Intern
As a design and strategy intern, I am constantly collaborating with the team by identifying business opportunities, while artistically planning and implementing those strategies with storytelling. I believe that creativity, in the most limitless sense of the word, is the skill of the future.
Raul Corrêa-Smith, Project Manager
I'm an architectural designer and educator invested in cultural exchange as a driver for societal impact. As program coordinator for Studio-X Rio, a think tank focused on the future of our cities (a GSAPP Columbia University initiative), I have facilitated a range of mixers, workshops and activities aimed at expanding the boundaries of architectural thought. Having navigated between Rio de Janeiro and New York City, I am now residing in Amsterdam and managing MOTI's latest initiative, FORMS, or futures-oriented museum synergies, a new network which will bring together the most forward thinking museums in the world to exchange and collaborate towards impact driven global projects.
Huub Monincx, Financials & Accounting
I am financial controller who is passionate about arts history and heritage conservation. Next year, I will start my Masters in conversation and restoration at the University of Amsterdam in partnership with the Rijksmuseum. At MOTI, I am responsible to keep financials and accounting on track, while providing guidance on Dutch legal and tax matters.
