Everything I do is about ways of allowing innate human capacities of presence, discernment, drive, empathy, and creativity to enter the arena of design and implementation.
This way, we can guide design and implementation through with minimal friction. Below I present some concrete ways of doing this.
- UX design
- Conceptual modeling
- Product management
Designing the product journey
what is the goodness here? begin to understand the value you propose
Starting from your value proposition, we will model your service processes and touchpoints. We ensure the end experiences truly resonate with and meet the needs of your users. This background work sets the stage for more detailed specification, and for iterating on implementation.
By employing methodologies tailored to your needs, we ensure that your product’s user experience is intuitive, engaging, and aligned with your target audience’s expectations.
User research: Contextual inquiry
in the place where people do the Thing watch them do it ask about what excites or frustrates them what sparks joy
Contextual inquiry helps understand your users’ needs and behaviors in their actual usage environments. We uncover deep insights that might not emerge in a more traditional research setting. We do this by observing and interviewing your users during their activities,
This approach can reveal hidden elements of your users’ expectations, frustrations, and satisfaction levels. It offers invaluable data to inform your product design and development processes.
draw the Thing many times really look, reflect and learn
Are you ready to bring your ideas to life? By creating realistic, interactive mockups and prototypes, we get a tangible representation of your final product before it’s built. This not only allows you to visualize your ideas but also test them in real-world scenarios.
I’ll work to see that prototype is visually engaging, user-friendly, and aligns well with your brand, making it easier for stakeholders to understand and support your vision. Let’s collaborate to refine your product’s functionality, and boost its market success potential.
watch the people curiously while they use the Thing and talk really listen, don't comment

understand how the people who do the Thing think about the Thing
Clarify complex business concepts, transforming them into thought out database designs. With my guidance, we will create a detailed, data-driven representation of your business’s information requirements.
I provide expert services Concept D modeling, but I also talk ER (Entity-Relationship) if needed. Modeling helps you ensure there’s shared understanding about core ideas which can be effectively communicated across the organization. Read more

Summary: I can support you in the process of creating intuitive and engaging frameworks and applications that meet your specific needs, whether it’s for a dynamic website, a powerful desktop application, or an interactive mobile app. I want to bring your designs to life, ensuring they not only look great but also work seamlessly.
feel the Things reflect them back ask about their experience learn new Things
An atmosphere of presence and emotional openness fosters efficient communication. I have a comprehensive toolbox of different excercises for constructive communication and embodied awareness. These can support us in hearing each other better.
I love to coach others with any and all of the activities mentioned above, and I have a background in education. So I can wield learning methods from modern pedagogy, to boost learning rooted in concrete action, in a setting of equals.
