Hello, I'm Erik

Product strategist and leader with an endless drive for creative production

24 years experience in hands-on design contribution, 10 years of strategic leadership experience. Skilled in product strategy and design, service design, and design technology.

I live in the nexus of design, technology, psychology and business.

Creative productivity with like-minded people that produce works of meaning and merit is my obsession and core motivation. My purpose in life is to engage, entertain, and educate people with the things I have built.

I am the co-founder of Practical by Design and co-creator of the Practical Service Blueprint. I'm also the author of a 4-book space opera series and fiction podcast.

Presently I work at Mural as Sr. Principal Product Strategist, helping change the way we think, collaborate, and make the abstract concrete.
