10 years of experience doing consumer insights, user experience and futurecasting at Intel Corporation. Currently studying how we define personal identity increasingly by what I buy, where I go, what I do and what I like. Realizing that privacy equates to control over that information. Working on user experiences that help consumers derive value from this digital footprint they leave behind. Current interests: Photography, bartending, furnituremaking, hiking, making better BBQ, and fatherhood. Hoping I can pursue furnituremaking without growing a beard and wearing plaid. Reading on my Nightstand: The Drunken Botanist, Imbibe!, The Circle, Campaign Furniture, By Hand and Eye Random Places I've Been Recently: The Crucible, TechShopSF, Saison, Bourbon and Branch Thing's Ive Bought Recently: Laguna 14 12 Bandsaw, Google Glass, Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro lens Music Im Into Right Now: The Kills, Jack White, The Black Keys, B-52s, LCD Soundsystem (see what I mean?)
