Writer & Public Speaker
For over twenty years I’ve worked within the overlaps of psychology and design. As a contemporary Jungian analyst, I draw from Jungian psychology, neuroscience, and the psychology of desire. I specialize in helping creatives such as designers, artists, innovators, and entrepreneurs.
As a designer, I work occasionally as a consultant exclusively in strategy and research for socially responsible design, cultural institutions, and similar types of organizations that are trying to make the world a better place. As an educator, over the last 14 years, I’ve taught and mentored over 2,000 designers and artists at New York University (NYU) and Pratt Institute.
In Fall 2015, I presented my ideas about the emergence in our time of the Archetype of the Designer. This work is ongoing. I’m also interested in the relationship between neuroscience and spiritual experiences. I’m designing a course for professional clinicians on neuroscience and spirituality which I will teach in Winter 2017.
