We are highly selective with admitting new members (~20% admit rate), so fully completed profile questions will get priority. What is your full name and LinkedIn profile URL?

I am a freelance psychology advisor/UX consultant for health startups and institutions. I help them design and build web and mobile apps to improve people's health and happiness, which often involves habit design. I studied psych at Stanford and am hugely influenced by Al Bandura, BJ Fogg, Bess Marcus, Dick Thaler, Dean Karlan, Angela Dunn, Ilse De Bourdeaudhuij and others in the area of habit design. I'm excited to share with and learn from others who have similar interests and backgrounds!

What is the nature of your interest in designing experiences for personal habit development?

Can you share a 5-minute personal story about a successful habit practice that's lasted longer than 100 days? If so, please give us just a quick synopsis!

At Keas I used gamification and habit design to create a corporate wellness app that saw 75% of registered users continue to be engaged with their health (and the app) for at least 3 months. With myself, I've been using a cute mixture of technology for triggering all sorts of health stuff as I've tried to 'hack' myself. The new one: using IFTT to send me a text message trigger on days which it's raining and I have a scheduled gCal workout to tell me not to flake!

Which (if any) relevant guest speaker(s) could you contact to speak at a future meetup with whom you already have a personal relationship?

Not sure. If I think of any I'll let you know.

Which specific host locations (if any) could you contact to host/sponsor a future meetup?
