I research businesses, people, and contexts; simplify strategy, products, and technology and facilitate the design of impactful and delightful experiences
Strategy tells us why we make things. I love working with strategists, and speak their language fluently.
Technology is what we make things with. I’m a confident coder myself and in general a bit of a tech geek.
Service design explains how things fit together. I think of all design ultimately as service design.
Architecture gives things a home and a life in the big cosmos. I make sure people can find the things we make.
Interaction design is the design of how things behave. Physical or digital, things should act when acted upon.
With creative direction everything comes together in wholesome experiences that resonate and connect with people.
I’m at my best when I work with people, not for people. The cultures and environments I work in are very important to me, and I’ve been lucky to work with some great folks
But really I just want to make cool stuff that actually matters to people
And then maybe get a car and a dog, work with people who inspire me, live a happy and balanced life, maybe start my own design agency one day, speak at conferences, climb some more mountains, and still be around when humans live on Mars.
