A few days ago I got an email from the lovely Liz Danzico asking if I’d participate in a video project she was putting together for the Galapagos Art Space’s Career Camp, “a low-cost, high-value, five-part lecture and networking series for professionals (employed or otherwise!) living in New York City.”

She wanted to share advice from people who have inspired or influenced her work, and I am beyond honored that she though to include me. I really look up to Liz. She is one of the foremost practitioners in information architecture and user experience, and in many ways I hope to follow in her footsteps.
