I help people make good things for other people.
Designers hold close the promise of making people's lives better, or less romantically— smoothing out the rougher spots.
I have been fortunate to work on a variety of products from physical to digital—consumer facing apps to enterprise software. Through design I have met a range of folks from soft spoken farmers apologetically trying to find out if their crops will freeze to furiously outspoken swiss platform architects upset about a particularly tedious workflow and a spectrum of specialists, makers, parents, activists in between. Not everyone knew exactly what to ask for but they all knew what they wanted to do, what was helping and what felt like it was in the way.
