I am a designer and architect from Nebraska. During the day I’m a Designer and Strategist at WeWork in San Francisco and teach every so often. My remaining hours are devoted to countless side projects, Reimaging an architectural collaborative in LA, or PDX CNC a fabrication shop in Portland. I spend alot of time in the garden too.

At WeWork, I helping bring a human centered frame to emerging technology platforms. My days involve using design to build strategy, bring teams together, and turn prototypes into products.

At IDEO I led interdisciplinary teams to help companies innovate at a range of scales, from air transportation to finance, and product design to urban planning.

As a professor, I have taught Interaction Design and Architecture at both the California College of the Arts and UC Berkeley. The courses focus on either integrating new technologies into the design process or solving problems in the overlap of digital/physical environments.

At Reimaging we conduct architectural research. Recently we published “How To Level A Foundation”, a framework for mapping institutional infrastructures in Los Angeles and a manual for designing opportunities within it. The work is ongoing.

I received my Bachelors from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln and Masters from Princeton University.
