After teaching in Austin, Texas and around the world for 10+ years,
I embarked upon a path to study design.
My career in design “officially” started at the Austin Center for Design. There, I practiced under some of the nation's top professionals, and dove deep into the methodology and theory that supports this practice. Officially, my credentials are in Interaction Design and Social Entrepreneurship. I think it's the latter half of that title that really sets my design practice apart.
Though design can be applied to almost all fields, using human-centered design to solve some of the world's trickier problems is really where its power lies. I am a strong believer in collaboration and working alongside the beneficiaries of a design project. Not only is this empowering for those involved in the design process, it's exponentially more likely a project will be adopted and sustained.
I believe that human-centered design is about much more than being great for business. It represents a cultural revolution in which we start prioritizing people and relationships, which to me, is what matters most.
