I'm Erik Olesund

A user experience researcher and strategist based in San Francisco, CA. I use design* to grasp and solve problems that matter by focusing on what people need and experimenting my way forward.

* people often call the approach design thinking, human-centered design, user-centered
design, UX, user experience, product design or service design. I think design works just fine.
