I design socially engaging experiences.

The Future of Human Connection

A majority of our in-person communication is unconscious. Unconscious communication is the subtle, unintentional, unconscious cues that provide information to another individual. The more attuned we are to unconscious communcation, the more empathy we can have with others. The benefits of empathy are endless. We can learn, understand, and grow from each other. We can build teams, run organizations together, fundraise capital to run startups, or start movements to make the world a better place.

My focus is on technologies that help with this movement: to bring the world closer together. The goal is to help people be more attuned to the unconscious, be more connected to those around them, become conscious to the world and discover how they can make a positive impact.
