I am the Founding Chairman of MakeDC; Washington DC's Public Interest Design studio, connecting people with design to solve social, economic, and environmental issues. I believe in the power of Human Centered Design to solve real problems for everyday people. To see this love to fruition, I established MakeDC to offer design services to those who have never been designed for before; the other 90%. A leading expert in the field of sustainable design, I seamlessly blend the design process between digital and analog realms, utilizing digital manufacturing and rapid prototyping technologies. A recipient of multiple national and international design awards, I have served on numerous design competition juries, and am an established academic and professional speaker.
