👋🏼 I'm Lucas. I currently lead a team of product designers and researchers designing can't-fail software for first responders.

I love working at the intersection of design and systems thinking; leading, growing, and mentoring designers and building strong design cultures; and teaching and coaching design to non-designers, and am happy to share what I know. I also know what design hiring managers are looking for in designers and researchers and can help you stand out when you apply.

A few more bona fides: in the past, I've designed physical and digital products, services, and systems in healthcare, finance, government, and other sectors. I've worked in consultancy (IDEO), for startups, and for large public entities (The University of Texas at Austin), so I've seen a lot. I am an Assistant Professor in design at the University of Texas at Austin and have taught graduate-level courses in design.

Whether you're just starting out in design or are about to jump into your first design leadership role, I'm confident I can help you in your journey!
