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'm an instructional designer with a background in user experience, and I'm really interested in the factors that influence behavior change. Currently, the answer to the really difficult problems is to give people more information, but the problem is almost never due to a lack of information. That means that we need to better understand the factors that influence behavior, and how to help people make the changes that they want to make. I think we have an enormous disconnect, and need to figure out how to bridge that gap.

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!

Probably the most successful instances for me have involved changing my environment - eg creating a specific location for junk mail, to break the habit of having it all over the house, or designating a location for my keys, so I can find them again.

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

Hmm, there are a few possibilities, depending on what you are looking for.

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

My workplace is a possibility, though I'd need to know more.


I'm an instructional designer, but think that the really interesting challenges are behavior change ones -- where people *know* what to do, but need help doing it.
