Ethan James Appleby

I am an explorer and entrepreneur. 

I am passionate about Design Thinking as a means to transform culture in organizations and countries and am a certified Design Thinking coach from the Stanford Hasso Plattner Institute of Design. Using Design Thinking I have worked with key business and political leaders on critical strategic issues. He has worked with non-profits, education, commercial and government entities to create tangible benefits. 

I currently live in San Francisco where I am launching a startup I founded: Vango (that was created using the principles of Design Thinking). I am fortunate enough to work with extremely talented and cool people to make create something we are proud and passionate about. When I can, I also facilitate Design Thinking for select clients.
