 founder & ceo, phase 

What inspired you to develop your idea into a startup?

What are your dreams and aspirations for the company going forward?

What is your motivation that keeps you going every day?

What is your strategy when things don’t turn out the way you expect?

Phase is all about “Creative Flow” — which is that feeling a designer gets when they’re really in the zone, and design just flows.
We’re building Phase to help designers get into (and stay in) creative flow as much as possible.

I want to build a product not only for UI/UX but a suite of web-based, collaborative products for a range of creative mediums.

I think the problem we’re trying to solve really matters, and if we succeed, we can really bring more happiness into millions of designers’ lives.

I keep a few structured journals. It helps me improve my thinking for the future.
