Howard SilvermanHello. Welcome.

In recent years, a lot of my energies have been on learning, writing, and teaching about systems+design. I’m a founding faculty member in the Collaborative Design MFA program at Pacific Northwest College of Art. I’ve also taught several years in the ITP program at NYU.

From 1999 t0 2012 I worked with Portland, Oregon-based Ecotrust, starting as webmaster and ending up as senior writer and analyst.
