A cultural anthropologist by training, Carly recognizes that understanding human behaviors, motivations, drivers, and latent needs must be at the heart of every design process. She is a full-fledged believer in the idea that those for whom we are designing should be those with whom we design. In fall 2015, Carly and her friend and colleague, Tyler Samstag, student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, co-founded Co. C r e a t e to bring creative problem-solving skills to the Harvard community in hands-on and innovative ways.
