Design Sprint: Sexual Health. Beyond my wildest dreams, this event was so amazing! A huge crowd of creative, enthusiastic, open-minded humans gathered to start a real dialogue about the future of sexual health and design new ways to create healthier, safer, sexier experiences for all kinds of people. A dream come true! Thank you all. #healthysexydesign

throwback post: that time when +Laura Calandrella visited my class in Chile, via Skype! I'm reviewing all the images that have ever lived on my blog, as I filter and sort and build something fresh and new. Oh the nostalgia!!

My article about real-time data, wearables and preventing fatigue-related accidents is up on +RT Insights. Writing about fatigue and researching its impact has made me a lot more conscious of my own sleep habits! Curious to hear what you think of the article, as well as what we're building at Bridgecrest Medical. 
The combination of wearables and real-time data analysis offers promising new ways to address the ongoing risk of worker fatigue, especially in industries that require 24/7 production. As RTInsights contributor Leslie Forman explains here, by assessing and responding to key indicators in real-time, managers can prevent accidents before they happen.

So excited to finally be able to share this with the world! I've been busy behind the scenes working on the new BridgecrestMed.com and it's finally out in the world! It features a one-minute video created by the awesome team at Piehole.TV and a 20-page guide called How Wearables and Real-Time Data Can Prevent Fatigue-Related Accidents. I'm especially grateful to +Abby Kerr, who helped me to pinpoint the brand's Voice Values (Power, Innovation, Excellence) and write the copy with those in mind, and +Tami Smith, who has given me the tools to see my strengths and work with them (with a Competitive/Methodical buyer in mind). I've also been lucky to work with a talented team of user experience designers and researchers through General Assembly and designers and developers from all over the world. :)

I use Canva a lot, especially to resize and edit graphics, and I'm looking forward to seeing the next generation of this tool.

I'm back in my office in SF after a super busy and successful trip to Peru and Chile, and look what's waiting for me! A gorgeous package from Bumbleroot: superfood hydration drink mix with coconut water, baobab, pineapple and mint. I tore into this recycled packaging like a little kid on Christmas! Thank you and congratulations to my dear friend Sara Andrews! http://bumblerootfoods.com

As an independently minded woman, I can relate. Ann Friedman is brilliant.  

"I want to believe Bolick is right, that “spinster” is a state of mind. But I don’t think it’s that simple. The desire to transcend social categories like gender, sexual orientation, and relationship status is just that: desire. You can be the most independent-minded woman in the world, but if you enter into a relationship, you do have to reshuffle your time and space in order to make room for your partner."

Here's my latest post, where I confess to an addiction. To my phone! Must. Turn. It. Off. Seriously,  it's a constant struggle. Disconnecting takes courage... and primes the brain for rest and new possibilities.
