Somewhat to my disappointment, I've realized that the vast
majority of my website is now encapsulated in my CV, and so have
replaced my old, stunningly dated pre-CSS
website with this document. But if you're looking for my 1998-2008 photos or
my small collection of recipes
instead of information here, please help yourself.

|I care deeply about my teaching, and consistently receive
high teaching evaluations. I believe teaching is an
important part of a reflective research practice, and I
continue to integrate it into my development as a industrial
researcher. I teach with an emphasis on rapid prototyping,
user-centered approaches, iterative design processes, group
work and reflective design. I encourage learning from group
projects for real-world clients, such as local farmers and
community outreach projects. Since joining Nokia I have
co-taught Designing Liberation Technology and coached
multiple classes in design and cross-cultural work, all at
Stanford, as well as giving several lectures at UC Berkeley
and the California College of the Arts. I have also judged
various final class presentations and Masters projects at
both Stanford and Berkeley, and been on the committee for
students at CCA.

|I am an enthusiastic supporter of local food and wine,
brew a mean ale, and like to cook, dance, and host friends
and family. My wife and I have become experts at extensive
use of public transport while traveling so we don't have to
bring car seats for our twin one-year-old daughters.
