I’m a speaker, an author and a catalyst for change. My current focus is re-imagining aging not as an obstacle, but as a path towards simpler, healthier living. My work is focused on understanding how people live (think: Jane Goodall), and designing experiences that don’t just work, but empower.
I’m focused on a vision where the work we’re doing is going to make real change. And have huge impact. That’s what drives me. Sometimes all the gadgets and startups start to blend together. But, I started working with the disabled and aging communities and realized that we can actually change lives.
I believe technology has a place, not to add one more gadget to the environment, but maybe technology can help someone stay in their home for ten years longer. Maybe technology will create a less lonely person. Maybe it can help a blind person see.
