I help people (re)interpret their potentials

by showing them a virtuous continuum of the self that is ready for mastery.

Mindful Design

Why do I obsess about our mind, our habits, and the buttons we push to connect them all?

Everything we use and touch are designed by someone — an engineer, a designer, a brand, a network of systems within a culture of habits — Our experiences of the world are predicated by our tech-induced perceptions. Design influences behaviors.

Our behaviors determine the quality of our work and life.

I’m a Connector

of people and ideas.

I love learning about the ways we perceive ourselves and consequently what we believe we have to offer others — The art of peopling — Holistically perceiving, feature-setting, mental-modeling: A methodological art in building products, platforms, and thriving ecosystems.

Systems Design = Life Design
