About Us

Planning for the development of successful commercial products is very, very hard. In my experience, it is more difficult than the actual development process.

I’ve spent my 30 year career designing and building commercial software and digital services. I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of launching successful products and I’ve also been lucky enough to be a part of disastrous failures. I say “lucky” for both the good and bad, because I believe you learn as much from failure as you do from success.

Fast forward to today, I am leading a small team of talented creatives and developers. We dig deep into our client’s product requirements, because they come to us to help them realize their vision for a better tomorrow.

We are polite but firm on a team policy of not proceeding with design work until we have performed due diligence – competitive analysis, as well as a customer or end-user study.

Because solving the right problem builds careers, organizations and professional relationships.
