Service Design Director, the why lab.

Los Angeles

Hello, I'm Marina. I’m a multi-disciplinary design leader and conscious entrepreneur working at the intersection of service design, behavior science, education, and social justice.

As a design director, I've worked with Fortune 500s to social enterprises to NGOs on finding human-centered business solutions while also fostering a culture of empathy-driven innovation.

As an educator, I actively contribute to the growth of the design field by teaching and guest-lecturing at some of the most impactful designs schools around the world.

As a design advocate, I frequently give talks and executive-produce events to introduce design mindsets and career options in my communities.

Please do say hello and let's talk about design, standing desks, and how we can put more good into the world.

You may know me as the host for the podcast Why Service Design Thinking, which was one of the first voices in the industry and is still streamed in 120+ countries today. I took a hiatus on new content but it will be getting a relaunch in December 2020! Join the mailing list to be alerted when new episodes are released.
