Hi, I’m Xanthe. I am a designer and mentor who loves helping people move their ideas forward. 

WHY do I do this work? As a first-generation college graduate, I realize how important it is to have people in our lives that help us believe in ourselves, help us focus, and help us get to where we want to go. On the flip side, I realize how harmful it is when we don’t have those people in our lives.

BACKGROUND. In my work as a teacher and a mentor, I’ve helped hundreds of creative people get organized and take their work to the next level. My formal education is in industrial design and I have a wide range of topics that I stay current on. This range allows me to support people from many walks of life.

TOPICS. technology; design; entrepreneurship; manufacturing; clean tech; agriculture; creative practice; education; and social justice.

I’d love to hear about how you are doing with your own work, whether you are on a roll or feeling stuck. You can reach out to me through the ENGAGE page. I’d be happy to hear from you.
