Jacob Fleisher



I am a designer and educator using my several decades of industry experience to create realistic and challenging curriculum. I maintain a consultancy practice through which I engage in professional work throughout the year. Through my corporate and studio experience I have filled research, strategy, and design roles on software and hardware programs for Blink UX, Stanley-PMI, Microsoft, Amazon, Moen, Starbucks, General Electric, General Motors, Safeco, Nokia, Hewlett-Packard, and others. I have a number of patents for consumer electronic goods and interactive software, and one for a kitchen sink.
