Jason Brogan

Hi. I work across research, strategy, and emerging tech.

Design Thinking
+ Design Doing

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

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

Storytelling is central to my practice. From strategy to assessment, I draw upon systems thinking, in-person and remote research methods, and inclusive, participatory design practices—all with current 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.
