Writer & Public Speaker.
Hi, I’m David…
For over twenty years I’ve worked within the overlaps of psychology and design. As a contemporary Jungian analyst, I draw from not only Jungian psychology but also neuroscience, mindfulness, and the psychology of desire. I specialize in working with creatives; designers, artists, innovators, entrepreneurs, executives, leaders, and the like.
As a designer, I specialize in strategy, research, and usability most often within socially responsible design and cultural informatics. As an educator, I’ve taught, mentored, and coached thousands of designers and artists at New York University (NYU), Pratt Institute, and through workshops.
In Fall 2015, I presented my initial ideas and observations about the emergence of the Archetype of the Designer in our time. This work is ongoing. I’m also a budding neuroscientist interested in the relationship between neuroscience and spiritual experiences. In fact, I’m designing a course for professional clinicians on neuroscience and spirituality to be taught Winter 2017. The course is titled Jung and the Neuroscience of Individuation.
When I’m not thinking about or doing Jungian analysis or design, I’m probably on my bicycle blazing through the streets of New York City. Even in winter. I savor the freedom, diversity, and otherness that cycling allows me to experience. Someday I’m going to cycle Iceland’s Ring Road.
Have a look around and thanks for stopping by.
