About

I work across strategic foresight and design. I do this work together with organizations to explore the opportunities and challenges of possible futures in order to create and manage change. I develop products, services, experiences and scenarios, alongside trend analysis and research activities.

My foresight work spans varied fields, having worked with Microsoft, IKEA, with the Danish film industry, Philips, and in developing neurotechnology and wealth management spaces. 

Earlier, I was the head of the innovation lab at EHD, managing a team of designers and anthropologists in developing products and services around emerging technologies. 

I'm a frequent speaker at conferences and events on future-facing topics, including themes that explore the possible impacts of near-future technologies on culture and society - chosen in 2014 as a ‘Future Innovator’ by Ars Electronica, The United Nations ICT Agency and Hakuhodo.
