About This Site

Welcome! Back in the early days of blogging, some of us called personal sites like this one our "outboard brains." That's what you see here today – a collection notes, mostly about design and personal development, that I've been writing for myself since 2000.

Your host, Brad Lauster

About the Author

I grew up in upstate New York, and after college, moved to California, where I lived in Sacramento, Palo Alto, San Francisco, and Santa Barbara. In 2010, I moved to Hong Kong and then spent seven years in New York City.

These days, I'm back in San Francisco, where I work as a Director of Design & Research.

I love backpacking, rock climbing, riding bikes and being in the water. I'm also a food and cooking enthusiast, and a public transportation nerd.

I'm currently open to new job opportunites, so if you're looking for someone to lead your design, research or DesignOps team, let's chat.
