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?

As a Research Analyst with a San Francisco-based nonprofit focused on creating savings behaviors, I'm interested in learning about emerging technologies and theories around habit formation and behavior change.

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

No answer yet

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!

I've found extremely useful for formalizing a savings habit. Though my use of is still very much in the "quantified self" realm, I see opportunity for this and other platforms to become more social and collaborative, akin to SmartyPig and Virtual Piggy.

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

In the future, someone from EARN's Research Institute could potentially speak about the work we're doing to create positive savings behavior amongst low and moderate income individuals across California.

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

We would be happy to help secure a location if asked. Depending on how big the meetup is, we may be able to accommodate a smaller gathering here at EARN in downtown SF.


Hi all! I learned about this group after watching Michael Kim's talk about behavior change gaming from the Health Innoventions 10/13/11 event. I'm interested in habit design & behavior change, and would love to join the group! Thanks! Matt
