Jason Brogan

Hi. I work at the intersection of UX and emerging tech.

Design Thinking
+ Design Doing

Process-oriented and a sprint enthusiast, I'm passionate about UX strategy—namely, iterative, user-centered design, innovation, and research—and emerging tech like AI and blockchain. 

From creating and validating value propositions to synthesizing research and data-driven analysis, I thrive on developing and testing prototypes, failing (forward) fast, and utilizing regular feedback towards making actionable, market and user-supported insights, recommendations, and decisions.

Storytelling is central to my practice. From strategy to assessment, I draw upon various in-person and remote, generative and evaluative research methods—all with current digital tools.

I'm an active coder (but tech-agnostic), and I prototype with paper, exercises, role-playing, and simulations using digital tools from InVision, JavaScript, and Swift, to Raspberry Pi, VR (Unity 3D), and beyond.

I also make music.

Resume

I've created new products and conducted R&D with clients and collaborators like Bell Labs, Ford, The History Channel, IBM Watson, OpenBCI, and Vonage, among others.
