Chris & Tracy 

We have worked in the field of design and innovation for over 17 years between us.  We've helped sustain a food revolution for Jamie Oliver, and redesigned the way LA county votes.  We've even engaged the world's most creative minds in science by turning their genes into music at TED. Throughout our careers, we always wondered, what if we took the same create problem-solving process we used to help well-known organizations solve their toughest challenges and applied it to peoples lives?  Would it work? Would anyone listen to us?  And maybe event scarier, what would happen if they did? Results May Vary is a thoughtful experiment to see just what happens when you set out to intentionally design you life.  


Tracy In Space

Hi, I'm Tracy 

I often can't believe what I get to do for a living. My specialty is digging deep and finding solutions to the toughest business and social challenges of our time. No joke!

As a Communication Design and Project Lead at IDEO, I became adept at using the creative problem-solving process of Design Thinking to identify, envision and express innovations for a wide variety of clients around the world.

Today, I have the honor of partnering with passionate organizations doing meaningful work to help them increase their impact in the world. I'm also writing my first novel, tentatively called "Shorty and His Run Down, Piece of Shit Tilt-a-Whirl." And of course, I'm having a blast building the Results May Vary community here with you and my good buddy, Chris!


Hi, I'm Chris 

I'm new to podcasting, early stage start ups and synthetic turf.  

Most of my headspace is dedicated to a new stealth start up in San Francisco.  I also work in Experience Design at One Medical, a health company reinventing the way you interact with your doctor.  I spent the better part of a decade at IDEO working on a variety of projects like "The Future of Beer" and "Jamie Oliver's Food Foundation". 

For fun I've coached Team In Training, participated in 50+ triathlons and has traveled globally as a competitive mountain bike racer.  I love the shared economy, tiny houses, nature and anything "off the grid".  My current idol is Zach, the creative maker, on Tiny House Nation.  

I live in San Mateo with my fiance Alyssa and our rescue dog Robby (named after a famous waterman named Robby Naish) 


Thanks Tracy! 

I'd like to personally thank Tracy! Without her this would still be an idea to "get to one day".   Thanks for collaborating on a project that epitomizes everything we believe in.
