One part designer, one part problem solver, and one part entrepreneur, with a dash of trouble maker.

I work with leaders in organizations to leverage the power of design to grow their communities and create greater impact. Using design thinking to overcome challenges and capture opportunities, we build culture and communities, and craft beautiful solutions.

 
 
 

While many talk about creating a better future, only a few actually get out of their comfort zones and dare to make it happen.

WHAT I BELIEVE

I believe that creativity and collaboration can disrupt the status quo for the better. I believe that creating things together is never a straight-line process: it twists and turns, shapes and changes, frustrates and inspires, but the synergy of collaboration multiplies productivity in a way that far surpasses what each of us can do alone. I have spent a large part of his career building creative cultures and leading collaborative teams at agencies in New York and startups in Silicon Valley.

 

MY STORY

Before design, I served as an officer in the Singapore military. I attended Rhode Island School of Design, where I co-founded a conference called Better World by Design, and went on to be  selected as a TED Fellow. I also rode across the country on a bicycle for affordable housing, and occasionally I speak at conferences and schools.
