Dane M. Johnson
As a UX researcher, strategist, and writer I've had the pleasure of working alongside leaders in the fields of education, urban design, eco-tourism, community building, documentary film, music, food & beverage, and product development. The common denominator in all of these pursuits are that my collaborators are my friends, and they’re bold enough to deconstruct the status quo and reconstruct solutions with imagination and grit.
In 2013 I spent a year designing my own grad-level education in writing and storytelling. Here’s the video to prove it.
I once spent 40 days in silence at a monastery in the high desert of New Mexico. Check it out.
Though not a confident singer, I was talked into performing a small role in a Russian opera.
I am currently enrolled in Mandarin Chinese language lessons.
When I’m not hustling, you’ll find me sipping a pour-over of a natural-process coffee and/or failing at being vegan around my Logan Square neighborhood in Chicago. If you don’t spot me in the hood, please reach out if you have a project that you think I might be able to help out on. Just hit that button below.
