Hello. I'm Dan Winterberg.  I make things. Mainly as a Design Manager at Fitbit in San Francisco. I also teach design, mentor designers, and empower design teams to ensure they're successful designing delightful products. I'm big on being user-centered with a little bit of "wouldn't it be cool," but always anchored in research and an understanding of people. And I love working in a design team — the process is so much more fun, and the resulting design is so much better when designers work together.
