My Design Principles

I've found myself stubbornly fixed to these values (as quotes from people and organizations I love).

They've guided many a decision in my career.

  • Be present for the whole journey, learners that you are. Be present for the whole journey.

    Halcolm (Michael Patton)
  • We view change as emergent from an accountable, accessible, and collaborative process, rather than as a point at the end of a process.

    Design Justice Principle #4 (I could point to all of them honestly)
  • The best interface is no interface.

    Golden Krishna
  • Make mistakes, but also make real amends.

    Elizabeth (Dori) Tunstall
  • ...the master's tools will never dismantle the master's house. They may allow us temporarily to beat him at his own game, but they will never enable us to bring about genuine change.

Josh, the Human

Lately I've spent more time volunteering at community art events. I have no idea how to paint, but it's fun pretending like I do in front of kids.
