I’ve worked as a designer, product manager, and executive at technology companies in both the US and Sweden.
Over the past several years I’ve focused on several broad areas of interest which intersect at a number of points. First, I’ve been learning about the nature of consciousness and inner experience and how it shapes our most fundamental beliefs. Second, I’ve looked at the future of work, from the rise of remote jobs to skepticism about the very idea of work. Lastly, I’ve investigated how open-source and peer-to-peer software can help create a more humane digital landscape.
I hold a B.A. in Philosophy from Hampshire College and am a dual citizen of the US and Sweden. I currently live in Stockholm.
In this interview, I talk about my start in product and design, what I look for in designers, and my time at Klarna.
I created a lesson for Hack Design about the importance of human-centered design.
