The Curious Company

I am a part of the problem-solver collective, The Curious Company. Practicing a radically collaborative form of Human-Centered Design, The Curious Company brings innovative thinking to solve the most entrenched issues of our day. The goal of the collaborative is to bring solutions at the scale of the challenges, while working shoulder to shoulder with NGO partners to leverage their talents and leave them more capable of developing human-centered design interventions in the future.
