Jonathan Podolsky has what he calls “Idle Hand Syndrome.” His garage-turned-workshop currently houses a homebuilt electric motorcycle, an automatic rainwater collection system and a pneumatic ski-press (for those days when you really, really feel like laminating your own pair of skis.
Jonathan holds a Masters in Architecture from Norwich University in Northfield Vermont. When he’s not tinkering in the garage, he is an Experience Strategist with an extensive background in creating innovative customer, guest and patient experiences for major retailers, hospitality companies and healthcare providers. He leverages eight years of industry knowledge in his work reinventing and revolutionizing consumer experiences and services based on brand values and strategic goals.
It's safe to say Jonathan knows how to create and leverage a good persona, so he figured he'd share his own personal persona with you. Ya know, in case you'd like to use it for your upcoming project.
Jonathan is an occasional contributor to Service Design Magazine and has taught “Intro to service Design” classes at Tufts University.
Five years in Vermont turned Jonathan into a tree-hugging sustainability expert with mediocre ski skills. These days, his quest to annoy his wife with small explosions keeps him working constantly on projects/science experiments, and so far, he claims to have a 50/50 “epic fail to success ratio.”
In what little spare time he has, Jonathan also teaches "Service Design and Marketing" at Mass Art.
