I have been on-again-off-again on this personal blog since my Japan days nearly a decade ago. Now it’s time to officially announce my hiatus and the launch of a new web presence.
I am using my summer vacation from teaching to work on Foossa, a community-centered design consultancy. From now on, I will be posting my professional activities on the Foossa site. To keep up with my personal life, find me on Facebook or Twitter. This site will stay up for archival purposes or until zombie blog resurrection time.
Foossa is a collective of creative spirit animals. Our namesake and totem is the fossa (pronounced â€œFOO-saâ€), a carnivorous cat-like mongoose native to the island of Madagascar.
We partner with individuals and organizations to turn inspiration into impact. We help dreamers, starters, and makers communicate their visions and engage their communities.
We are designers, storytellers, and problem-solvers. As a collective, we are able to stay agile, independent, and accessible, but also collaborate with others in our network for larger projects that may require specialized expertise. As spirit animals and strategic partners, we offer guidance, advice, and a bit of serendipity. Think of us as a creative agency meets petting zoo meets smart mob.
