Hello, thanks for visiting!

My name is Dean Whitney. This website is a place to share insights and ideas related to designing our lives. That includes improving our quality of life, mental health, physical health, communication skills and all around ability to decide on what's best for our lives and make it happen while enjoying the process.

I've spent the past 30 years trying to figure out what was wrong with me. I was a talented artist and found some success as a designer and ultimately a creative technologist working with large companies in big industries like pharmaceuticals and financial services to design digital experiences. 

Essentially I can design just about anything from graphics to service model architecture.  Basically I'm good at figuring things out, seeing patterns, simplifying processes and I'm very capable with all kinds of visualization tools from PowerPoint to Photoshop.  

All this time I've been developing and refining my own program to treat chronic depression, PTSD and substance abuse issues. I've developed a framework that has been life changing for me. I'm in the process of creating a mobile app and writing a book so I can share it with the world.
