Design Ethics & Product Philosopher at Google
He is a leader in the movement for “Time Well Spent” (http://timewellspent.io) to align technology and media with our humanity. Instead of a “time spent” economy where apps and websites compete for how much time they take from people’s lives, Time Well Spent aims to re-structure the design of apps and media to compete to help us live by our values and spend time well.
Tristan was a Design Ethicist and Product Philosopher at Google until 2016, where he studied how technology influences a billion users’ attention, well-being, and behavior. He led design sprints with product teams, including a meeting between Google’s lead product designers and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, international spokesperson for Mindfulness.
Previously, Tristan was CEO and Co-Founder of Apture, which Google acquired in 2011. Apture-enabled millions of users to get instant, on-the-fly explanations without leaving their place, across a publisher network of a billion page views per month.
Tristan holds several patents from his work at Apple, Wikia, Apture and Google. He graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Computer Science, focused on Human Computer Interaction while dabbling in behavioral economics, social psychology, behavior change and habit formation in Professor BJ Fogg’s Stanford Persuasive Technology lab.
