I’m an experience designer and one half of Goodmaker, a studio that focuses on helping organizations kickstart or optimize their design practice. In the lead up to this, I did hands-on experience design and occasionally facilitated design workshops for entities like Google, Twitter, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, MIT, the US government and a variety of startups.
Other important Laurel facts: I will join you for cake pretty much anytime. I have literally and figuratively saved someone from drowning. The things I respect most in human beings are kindness, making an effort and humor. The things I respect most in non-human animals are fearlessness, the ability to correctly assess that I mean them no harm, and softness. I live in Oakland these days, but I first showed up in Guam.
