Personal Context

Interests and Expertise include

Product Design, Industrial Design, Systems Design, Organizational Design, Mass Manufacture, and other Large and Wicked Projects.

I am folding the future into the present. I’d like to spend my life guiding complex product systems towards egalitarian ends. Heritage craft-works and nostalgia are uninteresting to me. New infrastructures and modes of being are very interesting to me.

I assemble systems, large or small.
