Built Environment Design Researcher
Research | San Francisco Bay Area, US
Built environment and in situ product and service design research.
I’m an imaginative and energetic whitespace explorer, empathy builder, knowledge synthesizer, and sandbox player. Empirically-driven concepts about evolving social and personal meaning result in vivid and actionable narratives, behavioral models, and visualizations.
I believe in building an effective resource infrastructure and collaborating using well-understood and practiced design thinking processes to invent and apply appropriate/timely methodologies, arriving at inspirational findings and designs. Flexibility produces best from solid ground.
