Hi, I’m Brian! I use art & (digital) design to make our world more equitable & loving.
I’m a US expat and award-winning human experience designer, working 19 years on digital products in healthcare, blockchain, IoT, and fintech. I’ve teamed up with companies like Philips, ING, Land Life Company, WaitWhat, KLM, and GeoIQ. I coach startups on Lean innovation and have given talks & workshops in 11 countries. My first book, The Creative Empathy Field Guide, is out in ebook & paperback.
My UX practice incorporates creative empathy, storytelling, & ethical design. And I founded The Greatness Studio to help others use those tools too. I hold a Professional Doctorate in human-computer interaction & a Master’s in psychology.
Since 2013, I also perform in short films, commercials, & theatre productions. I believe our true superpowers come from where art & science meet, so my work explores that intersection. Also, I know six different ways to brew coffee ☕
