It's nice to meet you.
Hey. I am a founder of the collective Appropriate. I am a designer and leader working at the intersection of product, media and policy. I work primarily in emerging markets, emerging technology and forward-leaning application of design methods. I produce artifacts and facilitate conversations to support companies in making strategic decisions on how they run, the products they make and how they make them. I lead projects independently and collaborate regularly with Big Tomorrow and Argo. I have lead projects with Studio D Radiodurans, including many in partnership with Proximity Designs. I work closely with a handful of technology startups, including Smarter Sorting, a platform that reduces municipal hazardous household waste incineration through diversion, reuse and up-cycling. I was, not long ago, an interaction designer-then-associate director at frog, where I also acted as design research leadership for the Austin studio. I'm a member of the founding faculty at the Austin Center for Design, and run a small cosmetics company.
