Connecting the big picture with the details to build stronger systems

“In actuality design is not really about how it looks, it’s about the system thinking that went into [a product]”
— John MaedaMIT Technology Review – June 2, 2015

 

The future of design is bringing creative and analytical processing together to create systems that engage, teach, and inspire people to explore possibilities. This creative process connects behaviors and human needs to the user experiences that build business strategy. Through data collection, research and testing, the design process can also manage risk through our current rapidly changing environments.     

I am a hybrid thinker that has combined design and project manager experiences into a role that can see the big picture with the details. This background that combines design and operations allows me to develop and manage processes that can connect strategy and execution with its details. It gives me the experiences and detailed knowledge of the creative, human-centered design were by developing its necessary processes, allows the creation of relevant experiences for the user, and by doing so, drive business strategy that thrives. As a result, organizations can focus on improving human experiences that meet the challenges of our complex world. 

I am passionate about using design to create a better world and believe that we can develop systems that can shape a more sustainable future.
