So, I am a designer. Sort of… If I really had to explain what I do, I’d say I help people make things. My interests and specialties mostly lay in parts of design which are traditionally not considered to be a part of Design.
I’ve always considered “making it work whatever happens” the primary responsibility of any designer. This is why my focus was never limited to creative production, and I always sought out ways outside of what is traditionally considered design to increase the chance of success for the projects I’ve been a part of.
At one point in my career I’ve turned a corner and realized that I should shift focus from improving my own design skills, towards enabling others to work better with each other.
I have always been obsessed with cultivating creative cultures, and creating workplaces which attract amazing people.
These days I am doing business development at Superawesome—a digital product design agency I originally founded back in 2007—but it's the first 10 years of my tenure there which has enabled me to work hands-on with a huge number of people both as an individual contributor, as well as a leader.
I am using this experience to continue to help people and organizations to understand design as an asset, and to be able to work with design professionals smoothly.
