Let’s write the love story between your products and the people they empower!
I’m a human experience designer on a mission to make the world more equitable and loving.
Over the last 19 years, I’ve helped companies like Philips, ING, Land Life Company, and WaitWhat turn innovation strategy into award-winning products & services.
A US expat, I’ve given talks and workshops in 11 countries. My first book The Creative Empathy Field Guide is out now.

“Brian is a passionate professional… a natural leader who brings forth not only a strong vision, and a hands-on attitude to the table, but also an infectious energy that binds a team together.”Omna Toshniwal
As a full-circle UX lead, I can support you at any stage of product development. And here are the three things I do best:
Whether Bach or Beyoncé, a choir sings with one voice. And each person on a product team should be able to contribute their own unique voice towards a shared strategy & vision; unified, not uniform.
Humans are creatures of habit; we stick with the things we love most. When people fall in love with your product or service, we can inspire healthy behavior change in them.
Show always beats tell. And we learn best when we give people artifacts to touch & interact with. From low-fi to high-fi, paper to pixels, prototypes bring your concept to life for customers & stakeholders.
“Brian can be the driver on any UX adventure you choose, but he can also be a very helpful navigator.”Judith Sol-Dyess
