My approach to design is conversational: I find it smart (and polite) to start with questions (?) which inevitably lead to insights (!) which form a baseline for iteration and collaboration (,) and result in a round solution (.)
I get most excited about complex design problems – usually that involve multiple devices, locations, user needs, and data sources. Added bonus: tackling subject matter that I have absolutely no prior understanding of (like baseball, or biomechanical research).
In my life-before-Experience-Design, I earned three degrees learning about designing communication, forming business strategies, and designing interactions. Somewhere in between, I waited a lot of tables, took a year of improv classes, and helped design food packaging (including the label for Peter Pan Peanut Butter).
I'd love nothing more than to talk about any of the above, with you, over coffee.
