Let’s be pioneers of tomorrow, not just tourists in someone else’s future. In the low-carbon frontier, let’s be remembered as architects not artifacts.

The following categories describe the strategic design spectrum and the key design pathways in which I intervene. This is a collection of the most common types of requests I’ve been entrusted with since the inception of the consultancy.

I founded Whispers and Giants on the idea that these challenges require a strategic design approach. My interventions focus on exploring, making sense, and understanding problems, guiding innovators with a clear orientation towards discovery and imagination.
