November 2015, Brooklyn, USA

I'm a co-founder of Dash Marshall where I lead our strategic design consulting focused on urban innovation.

Previously I've co-founded Makeshift Society Brooklyn, Helsinki Design Lab (in its 2008-2013 iteration), and a web 1.0 startup in Austin, TX.

I serve on the Board of Directors at Public Policy Lab and am still trying to answer the question: what is the opposite of a sandwich? (these are unrelated.)

We can stay in touch via Flickr, Twitter, LinkedIn, Medium or telepathy.
