About Me Presentation


I’m Dan Bartell, a guy with a vast array of interests (too many to some, but just the right amount to me). I’m passionate about design, usability, learning, and all-around cool things. Talk to me and I can help you to be passionate about these things too!

Who I Am Presentation

Who I Am

I’m a work in progress.

I’m 50% geek and 50% artist and revel in my ability to speak to those in both worlds. I get excited by the big picture, but I get excited by attending to the details too. I believe in taking the time to do things right, and I believe in making the effort to do things better. I’ve done a lot that I’m proud of, but I want to do so much more!

What I Do

What don’t I do? Seriously, I’ve got my crazy little mitts all over the place – exploring new aspects of human learning and user interaction, imagining THE perfect salt shaker, building my robot army, and designing cool, stylish apparel and accessories. Stick a pencil (or better yet, a stylus) in my hand, tell me your goals, and watch my imagination take off!

“The difference between science and the arts is not that they are different sides of the same coin even, or even different parts of the same continuum, but rather, they are manifestations of the same thing. The arts and sciences are avatars of human creativity.”
-Mae Jemison
