πŸ˜€ Hi, I'm a Product Designer, Startup Advisor, and Speaker on topics of Design and Future Food.

πŸ“¦ My current projects revolve around science and food technology.

πŸ“± Since 2005 I've managed the UX-focused software design agency Phlint working with some of the most talented people I know. I've worked with startups in the areas of Home Automation, Health, Blockchain (1) (2), and Retail.

🌎 I organize an international design group by the name of Global User Experience Designers. We have chapters in over twelve cities including San Francisco, Berlin, Tokyo, London, and New York City.

πŸ” I am the host of a podcast by the name of Cultured Meat and Future Food.

🎀 Hear my thoughts about the Developer-Designer Relationship (Web Summmit, 2013), the User Experience Design process (MCE, 2014), and UX Intuition Factors.

✏️ I studied advertising and design at the University of Illinois where I worked closely with makers at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and the School of Art + Design.

Working on something cool?

β˜•οΈLet's grab a virtual coffee. You can find me on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
