Hey there...I'm the Tayken (Taylor Kendal) behind the Design; an educator, writer, designer, improviser, community developer, techno-philosopher and Chief Program Officer at Learning Economy currently living in Denver, Colorado.

My work with the U.S. Dept. of Education, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Library of Congress, MSU Denver, and CU Denver has led me to a lifelong love for education, innovation, design, and the cultivation of decentralized, future-focused networks. I completed an MA in Information Learning Technologies from CU Denver and have 20 years of experience in project/event management, digital/social strategy, instructional/LX design, culture-crafting, improvising, and systems-level hacking of post-secondary education.

I’m currently focused on all things Web 3.0, digital ethics, bridging cultures of entrepreneurship and education, infusing agility and intellectual honesty into bureaucracy, learning from/traveling to distant lands (virtually and physically), exploring the future of education on blockchains, and occasionally writing words to help make sense of it all.

Giddyup…I like all the things!
