About me & my work:

I help people and organizations address challenging problems in design, innovation, and corporate and social change. In this broad frame, my background in cognitive psychology and UX design brings valuable contributions to methodology and solutions.

Hard problems are an opportunity for me to support deep changes in how people and organizations think and act -- changes that help bring them alive and into integrity and that greatly increase their effectiveness.

Also, hard problems are fun to solve.

I enjoy understanding things by taking them apart and rebuild them from the ground up, with deeper and broader foundations and better-integrated structures.

My need to understand the deeper aspects of things and connect them with practical applications has taught me to think creatively, and it has given me appreciation for the value of clarity. It has also given me enormous empathy for learners and users of designed things.

In the late 1980's I studied in cognitive psychology and human-computer interaction. Since the early 1990's I've worked as a user experience designer. I'm now broadening my frame to address more complex types of problems.
