Hey everyone! I'm Jake, and I'm a designer, writer, dad, and time efficiency nerd who wants to spend every hour of my all-too-short life as well as possible.
Over the past 12 years, I've been on a nerdy quest to make good use of my time at work, and find better ways for teams to use design to solve big problems. Eventually I created the GV design sprint process and, together with my colleagues, wrote the book Sprint. Not to brag (okay this is pure bragging) but Sprint made the NYT bestseller list!
In previous lives, I was a designer at Google, Microsoft, and Oakley, and in my current job as Design Partner at GV, I've worked with startups like Slack, Medium, Nest, and 23andMe.
Ask me anything about the book, sprints, startups, or whatever. I'm on Thursday 5/26 at 9:30AM Pacific.
