I’m a technologist, hacker, designer of experimental institutions, and community builder, with a particular love of all things urban, peer learning, architecture, and distributed systems.
I am interested in the design of systems that manifest our environment and social structures as an iterative learning platform for experimentation and innovation. I envision citizens as creators and participatory scientists. Our built environment and social institutions can be optimized to facilitate human creativity and collaboration. A major enabler for this can be technology, both as a means to study and learn from large scale statistical patterns in these environments (data mining), as well as designing and embedding technology to augment, redefine, or even blur environments such as home, work, public space, play, or transportation. The other approach of interest is in prototyping experimental physical spaces through real estate and property development.
My company combines technology and property development for experimental placemaking.
