Experience director, male, with long beard

12 years of design experience


I’ve been helping teams with a large range of services from user research, competitive landscapes, generative thinking, workshops, interactive design, prototypes, and more. I’ve directed and lead all types of designers.

My approach is simple, empower people and ask questions. Some things call for a lean-in approach and some call for shielding teams to allow them to work through a process.

I hold strong opinions, loosely. I believe in concision and candor. I welcome debate and know that strong relationships make the best leaders.
