Notes and writing

  • Inclusion, joy, and superpowers

    Our differences are our superpowers: traits that allow us to experience the world in a manner that is special and unique. Through inclusive design, we have the privilege of empowering people to discover their own super powers, to live authentically, and to fully experience the world in radical ways.

  • Design and motherhood

    I've seen others express concern that becoming a parent will negatively affect their career. Certainly, there are examples of toxic companies that only want to hire 20-somethings with no children or worldly commitments (though why anyone would fund leadership with such short-sighted expectations is beyond me). Parenthood teaches you ways of thinking about, reacting to, and experiencing life that you can never understand until you're in it.

  • Strength in flexibility

    Flexibility, combined with a strong foundation, makes us more resilient. The next time you're facing a tough situation, feeling threatened, or standing your ground, pause. Consider whether flexibility may help you around the conflict.
  • Designing for Humans

    When designing for humans, we recognize the innate differences that each person embodies while accounting for the absolute similarities that all humans share: a sensitivity to group dynamics, emotional stimulation, positive feedback, and familiarity.
