What topics would you like to see covered?

Healthcare Experience Design - products, services, and process to save money Visual Thinking - does it make a difference? Is it the same as design thinking?

Why did you join Design Thinking DC?

I am deaf myself - for the past few years, I have come to a conclusion that deaf professionals like myself are successful because of our unique way of thinking - visualizing and creative problem solving. Universal Design is a crude word but I believe design thinking can help add value to our business and social issues. The book "Change by Design" by Tim Brown codified my thinking and I want to learn more about this concept and how I can use it professionally and personally.

Introduction

Fun-loving urbanite who's always open for ideas. I have a MBA and 10 years of work experience but am looking to tap my intellectual curiosity and creativity.
