Human-centered design unifies my academic, professional, and entrepreneurial endeavors. Mapping out and understanding the way individuals and businesses interact with brands, spaces, and one another is my jam. It's propelled me to create companies and applications in both existing and emerging arenas, and to push people and products beyond what was previously thought possible.
I've lived a lot of places: Chicago, New York City, London, California, Tennessee, Nepal - to name a few in zero order and incongruent scale. I grew up in Lemont, Illinois. My wife and I moved to Minnesota from Brooklyn. It stuck. We have two dogs, Dinosaur and Tuesday. They are insane and perfect.
Oh, and I'm a Cultural Geographer. It's like being an Anthropologist or a Sociologist, but I can make maps.
