I speak

Usability, user experience, emergent behavior, and the unexpected implications of complexity are cutting-edge concerns and huge opportunities across all fields of product and service development. Get your attendees inspired, challenged, and confronted with state-of-the art knowledge.

I mentor

Inspire your business leaders, managers, and personnel. Get them out of the “business as usual mindset”. Teach them new methods for product design and development. Bring together the worlds and viewpoints of managers, developers, and customers, all while designing your next “star” product.
