I bring clarity and coherence to UX design by using architectural thinking. In addition to my consulting practice, I’m an author, podcaster, speaker, and educator.

This site is my online home and public scratchpad. Among other things, I write about:

  • Information architecture
  • Design as a strategic practice
  • How environments influence our behavior
