About you

Kevin likes cats. He also dabbles in design with the enthusiasm of a kindergartner, the efficiency of a freshman, and with dreams of getting a Ph.D. When not writing about design, Kevin devotes his time to redesigning and reimagining the measurement of student achievement. He takes a practical approach to designing ‘smart’ standardized tests that adapt for diverse students. But mostly he likes cats.

What is design?

…Next question.

Why are you participating in this project?

Thinking and writing about design inspires me to make mistakes, try new things, think differently, and push through the occasional grit and grind of labor.
