About me & my work:

I dream and design the future all day long. I can't stop dreaming and designing disruptive new consumer experiences. This is who I am.

I lead a design studio at Microsoft who's mission is to partner up with the Research teams of MS and help them land the next big innovation.

I get to work with the best of the best PHD's from around the world who also are focused on the future. I'm not sure where else you can think this big, act this big and also be compensated for it.

I think the coolest product I was a key part of @ Microsoft was Courier. It was the first time a new product was lead by design thinkers @ MS and it was created for consumers from scratch. It came so close to production, but got caught up in the stupidity of MS politics.

I also know that to create a hit for Microsoft is a rare event. I think that is what keeps me doing it. I know that if I hit it, I will impact more people on the planet than anywhere else.

Over the last three years I have gained actionable applied knowledge/ skillsets in the following areas of technology:

Robotics/ Sentience / HRI


3D Video

Machine Learning/ Big Data

Cloud Strategy

Application Development

Wearable Technology

The Internet Of Things

I'm currently working on unique combinations of the these technologies and creating new experiences for consumers.
