😀 Hi, I'm a Startup Advisor and User Experience Designer in California.

📦 My current projects revolve around retail technology.

📱 Since 2006 I've managed the UX-focused software design agency Phlint working with some of the most talented people I know. I've worked with startups in the areas of Home Automation, Health, Blockchain (1) (2), and Retail.

🌎 I organize an international design group by the name of Global User Experience Designers. We have chapters in over twelve cities including San Francisco, Berlin, Tokyo, London, and New York.

🍔 I am a host of podcast by the name of Cultured Meat and Future Food.

🎤 Hear my thoughts about the Developer-Designer Relationship (Web Summmit, 2013), the User Experience Design process (MCE, 2014), and UX Intuition Factors (MCE, 2015).

✏️ I studied advertising and design at the University of Illinois where I worked closely with makers at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and the School of Art + Design.

Working on something cool?

☕️ Let's grab coffee. You can find me on Twitter and LinkedIn.
