I’m a Creative Director at argo design as well as an author, speaker and consultant on the topics of customer experience strategy, kaleidoscopic thinking, creativity and play. In my career, I have been involved in almost every industry including consumer, financial, healthcare, education, travel and automotive. I spent ten years at frog design. I have also worked at IBM, M3 Design, and Trilogy (once described as Insanity, Inc. by Fast Company.)

I have spoken at venues such as MIT, SXSW, ToyCon, IIT, INPlay, the Creative Leadership Academy, YPulse MegaMashup, CPSI’s Creativity Conference and the IDSA World Congress. I have also written for The Atlantic, Fast Co. Design, Parents Magazine, GOOD, Gizmodo, Interactions, Innovation, Monthly DESIGN (Korea), Texas CEO & China’s Global Entrepreneur. My Fast Co. Design article, “The Four Secrets of Play Time That Foster Creative Kids,” garnered a nod as one of the Best Innovation Essays in 2010. I have been interviewed on the topics of play, creativity and technology by Forbes, Forrester, CNN, The Futures Laboratory and MIT’s Technology Review.
