ABOUT MEHello, I'm Jason, a San Francisco-based experience designer working at Dialpad.com, where we craft a business phone service with boundless customizability, all while packaging it into an interface still suited to a typical small-business owner.
I'm interested in a lot of different topics— recently I've been thinking a lot about how humans react to urban design interventions, the future of augmented and virtual reality experiences, how we might rethink agriculture to create a more sustainable food supply chain, and how modern day connectivity is rapidly changing languages worldwide.
I speak English, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese and French. Drop me a line in whatever way you prefer!
