Make a difference and matter


"The act of making makes us human."
-IDEO, Made in the Future

You have an idea to prototype, a book to write, a masterpiece to create, a solution to a problem in the world, and we need it. We need you.

Designers, makers, and entrepreneurs have a unique role in creating positive, systemic, and long-term societal change.

We want our work to make a difference and matter. No matter how crazy our ideas may be.

After a decade of designing, marketing, and teaching at LinkedIn, Google, Yahoo, Stanford, and Silicon Valley startups, I decided to share all my side projects publicly to inspire more creation and innovation. As a dad, I believe the greatest gift I can share with my sons is a body of work that positively impacts people's lives.

That's why I created Made in Public.

Join the community today and show us what you got.
