DO IT RIGHT


SCROLL DOWN

DO IT RIGHT


 

DESIGN THE RIGHT thing and DESIGN THE THING right

I love making things that are delightful and beautiful, but only if they're useful and meaningful too.

Care (Give a damn)

THERE IS A BETTER WAY AND it's worth fighting for

I'm an optimist...with a critical eye. I want to make every experience, product and person I'm around better, and I'm willing to do (friendly) battle to make it happen.

LEND A HAND

 

I'm a Giver, with a limited tolerance for Takers. I love to help, and I've always felt a strong sense of duty to work to make a positive dent in the world.

 
 
Usefullness, whatever form it may take, is the price we should pay for the air we breathe and the food we eat and the privledge of being alive

Do Less, Better


Do Less, Better


 

ATTACK PROBLEMS WORTH SOLVING

I've found that solving any problem – big or small – requires a good deal of effort because winning hearts and minds, changing behaviors, and shifting organizations is hard work. 

I try to be mindful of this cost, and prioritize to avoid pushing a boulder up the wrong hill.

DON't BE EVIL


DON't BE EVIL


 

MAKE THINGS PEOPLE NEED 

We don't need more junk in the world, physical or digital.

I aim to design meaningful experiences that really add value to people’s lives, rather than contributing to the clutter.

BE A HAPPY WARRIOR

I'm a friendly, playful person who strives to find joy in every day. 

I appreciate my good fortune to get to do this kind of work, and love working with other positive, solution-oriented folks who wag more and bark less.
