"Geek about a lot of stuff: civics, participatory democracy, blues music, guitar-playing, technology, blogging, group problem-solving, etc."
I am a web professional who has lived and worked in the Washington, DC metro area since 1998. I am married and father to a (nearly) four year old daughter. I only recently came across design thinking and the communities online around the concept and I am highly intrigued by the possibilities of how such thinking and methodology for problem-solving can be applied to real-world problems.
My primary interest is to explore and collaborate on how design thinking can inform democratic participation, civic engagement, promote healthy civic behavior towards a more efficient, representative, participatory, transparent and better-functioning democracy.
