Lee Kim

Lee is a force of nature.

A dreamer who believes in the magic of human connections. She has taught and facilitated dozens of workshops around human-centered design, at universities and organizations throughout the US. Each time leaving the participants asking “wow, did that just happen?” Her energy is infectious and her ability to inspire a group, uncanny. Lee believes that by focusing our attention to the "humanity" and "compassion", we can arrive at solutions that are truly delightful and amazing. Riding along with Lee is like taking a rocket to paradise!

Michael Glatts

Michael joins us from an alternate Universe.

He actually believes problems are fun. In fact, way more fun than solutions. He's a Visionary, Improvisational Performer, Design Thinker and Corporate survivor. He put in over 26 years at Pfizer Pharmaceuticals in a myriad of Sales, Marketing, Operations and Leadership roles where he and his teams took on an array of juicy challenges. Think about it…a guy who loves problems working in a behemoth corporation like Pfizer. Michael was the proverbial kid in the candy shop.
