Hey there...I'm the Tayken (Taylor Kendal) behind the Design; a HigherEd Leader, UX/I designer, social-strategizer, culture-crafter, and improviser currently living in Denver, Colorado. My (current) interests range from instructional design and writing about education, to life-hacking and future-facing techno-philosophy. 

I have 20+ years of experience in project management, digital/social media marketing, instructional design, networking, cultural bridge-building, and systemic hacking of higher-ed. I’m always looking to better understand the current shifts, nationally and globally, with respect to how we as humans learn, process information, interface with technology, and generate knowledge. 

Currently focused on responsibly hacking consciousness, bridging cultures of entrepreneurship and education, infusing agility and intellectual honesty into bureaucracy, providing organizational solutions and leadership, learning from/traveling to distant lands (virtually and physically), exploring the future of education on the blockchain, and occasionally writing words to help make sense of it all.

I like all the things!
