Sean Hill

Freelance UX Designer and Researcher, TopDog.Design


Sean Hill has spent his life combining creativity with work. Starting at age 19, he designed and developed award winning video games until he discovered improvisation where ideas could be expressed as fast as they could be thought. He is now a UX designer, entrepreneur, executive coach, author, performer and trainer who has developed and taught curricula for communication skills, innovation, and creative problem solving to clients such as Cisco Systems and the University of Texas McCombs School of Business MBA Program.

Sean is the founder of Top Dog Software, where he developed award-winning video games, as well as the founder of The Hideout Theatre, where he taught hundreds of people to expand their creativity through the study of improv comedy, storytelling, and the art of creating in the moment. He also authors the storytelling project @VeryShortStory, where over 200,000 people follow his writing.

He believes that the lessons learned from studying improv make us all better designers, better people, and more fun to work and play with. Sean's life philosophy is to "give your partner a good time".
