The socio-economic models of a regenerative future must be created and prototyped together.

I am a design researcher with an anthropology and interaction design background from UC Santa Cruz and Umeå Institute of Design, respectively. My design practice is grounded in participatory and speculative design methods and permaculture ethics, economic justice, and systems thinking. I am fascinated by how social order is created and maintained through social interaction technologies. My research aims to help design infrastructures that enable diverse economies and collective action towards human systems that operate within planetary boundaries.
