I hope to meet with people who have a lot more experience and knowledge in design and design theories than I yet have myself. I am looking for inspiring conversation and idea sharing. I have no doubt that I'll gain lots of reading material and intellectual stimulation. Also I'm looking forward to finding out about cool projects to participate in.
As a somewhat recent graduate my background is in philosophy. Post graduation I worked at a local gardening store for a year and then spent a month working on a farm in Nicaragua. I can't say that I have much background in design, but I'll certainly contribute my open ears and open mind.
The first thing that comes to mind is rather selfish since it's the park about 4 blocks from house: Brooks Park. It has been developed greatly since I was a kid, but as with most things it could always use some more work. If you've never been and like visiting parks in the city, this one has a great view.
Hi there! I recently stumbled upon user-centered design and my interest has continued to grow the more I read about it and related topics. Looking forward to meeting everyone!
