Teresa Brazen is a Program Manager at Adaptive Path. In her work she takes cues from her experiences across a broad spectrum of disciplines (filmmaking, fine art, improv, design research, user experience design) to craft intentional environments for her teams and clients. She believes that thoughtful design of these literal and figurative "environments" results in work that is actionable, co-created, co-owned and more likely to succeed in the world. When she's not managing design projects, she makes short films, interviews interesting people for podcasts, photographs signage that tells people not to do things, makes art and speaks about her work. Her short films and paintings have exhibited internationally in galleries in Guyana, Malaysia, China, Italy and the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. She and her fiancé are currently conducting research on marriage to learn what works and doesn't, so that they can be more intentional about designing their life together. They plan to share their findings in a book and blog. Learn more about what Teresa is up to at www.TeaWithTeresa.com.
