What are you putting a lot of thought into these days?

Going after problems with a capital P that will fundamentally change the way we interact with each other as humans and bring us closer in dialogue with the environment.

Who is your latest inspiration?

Currently on sabbatical from IDEO, I'm working on a couple personal projects around conversations and rethinking how we interact digitally. I've worked at IDEO as a designer, working in a hybrid blurry space of interaction design, programming, hardware design, and experience design.

What makes Oakland special?

The people, the landscape, mentality, and social culture that has been the bedrock of the space.

Share a childhood story that has influenced your life.

I tried to build a zipline using bicycle handlebars akin to Home Alone scene, it did not work and I fell 20ft to the earth but bounced and rolled down the hill. Got up stoked as ever, didn't try it a second time, but learned to appreciate physics.


Designer, coder, hardware, software, lover of art, discussions, craft, perception, environment, and an intentional existence.
