Frederik is the Head of Innovation & Creativity Programs at Google and leads a talented team which catalyzes 10x thinking at Google by building a thriving innovation environment.
Frederik is co-founder of “The Garage” at Google and was nominated as a visiting scholar at the Center for Design Research (d.school), Stanford University and research scholar at EdLab, Columbia University. As the founder of LearningDesign:Lab, he created award-winning user-centered design experiences for various groups -- from kindergartners, to teachers, to CEOs. Currently lecturing at Stanford University, he feels lucky to see students being empowered through user-centered, prototype-driven design so that they can do cool things that matter in the world. He currently lives in Silicon Valley with his wife and two sons, and draws inspiration from his boys' childish minds and playfulness.
As a true explorer of life, Frederik rarely does things twice to keep discovering new things everyday. So far, he has done only one thing twice, which he is very proud of. Ask him about it.
