Play is my medium for life.

I have been playing as a designer for 15 years, innovating products, services, strategies and curricula, all with a focus on awesome human experiences.

Passions:

  • cultivating creativity
  • prototype tinkering
  • fresh socks

Some skills:

  • qualitative research
  • user experience design
  • design strategy
  • design thinking
  • portfolio planning
  • experience prototyping
  • creative facilitation
  • innovation consulting
  • visual thinking
  • one-handed clapping

Some current projects:
