I've done most things because design makes life better. It flows both ways. As I do more design my life gets better. The more deeply I live life the better my design gets.

I'm here to demystify design, I'm here to connect people. People like you. Everyone I have ever met seems to be looking for purpose and/or permission. So many of us have moved beyond purpose and now seek permission.

I'm here to create frameworks where people have permission and control. I believe in direct connections.

Some people take control, I love to grant control. I do that at creativemornings.com/per every month. I do that when i build digital products (they can be a bit like this because I build conversational digital products). I also build physical products. I launched two products last year through two crowd funding campaigns and in doing so created deep connections with customers. In doing this I came to believe in trusting customers. It's a profound shift and grants permission to make life better. It's the foundation of my initiative, Australian Design Festival. Design makes my life better. It can connect you to a better life too.

Hi there, I'm Michael and I'm waving to you from shore.
