As Artefact’s Program Director, Doug is a master of managing large, complex engagements. He advocates for quality, transparency and a shared understanding of project constraints and tries to promote organization without dogma. His mission is to help clients with change management and transition plans to make sure that projects, products, and programs can be carried forward effectively.
Doug’s primary design interest lies in exploring how technology can improve education in the 21st century. He works to build new relationships with companies who create tools and communities for education. Prior to Artefact, he spent 13 years in Chicago working in a variety of design and communication roles. He has worked with education clients like Brown University, Princeton University, the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and the Kellogg School of Management. He has also worked with Aramark, Sears, Kenmore, Lexmark, and the Barack Obama 2008 Campaign.
When he’s not at work, Doug can often be found on outdoor adventures with his wife and twin two-year-old sons. If you’re out and about in Seattle, you might spot him running around Green Lake or scrutinizing vegetables at one of the many local farmers markets. He’s a big fan of post-modern fiction, movies and TV shows related to dystopian societies, and tacos.
