I work on select projects alongside my other work, in particular currently focusing on:
- design thinking facilitation, particularly user story mapping and rapid prototyping
- human-centered civic design projects, particularly exploring technology stacks and blueprinting services
- economics and financial strategy and conversation facilitation
DESIGN STRATEGY & UX SERVICES

I take on small-to-midsized projects: from basic setup of a catalog to a full datamodel analysis; from individual postcards to 80-page magazines; single-page blogs to multi-page programmed websites.
