Hi! I'm Jacob, an award-winning designer, researcher, strategist, and coach. My work focuses on fostering individual and community well-being, empowerment, and transformation. 

I partner with leading companies, health systems, and organizations committed to creating equitable, meaningful solutions. Together – and in collaboration with the people they serve – we cultivate and catalyze impactful organizational strategies, services, products, and business models.

Whether I'm designing a research plan, conducting fieldwork, facilitating a participatory workshop, leading a strategy meeting, or coaching a team in human-centered design methods, I'm passionate about developing actionable solutions that address challenges by enhancing human agency.

Originally from Schenectady, N.Y., I’m currently based in Washington, D.C.
