ABOUT US

WHO YOU?? We’re a team of philosophers, psychologists, artists, engineers, designers, and big picture life thinkers. Sure we have pHD’s, Masters, and Bachelors from great schools like Georgetown, Cambridge, LBS, Columbia, UCL, University of the Arts London, and Parsons the New School for Design. But that’s not our pride and joy, it’s our collective 200+ years of life experience. We’ve worked really hard to distill lessons we grappled with and knowledge hard-won to share with you.

At Paradym we believe in both the outside and the inside view, both personal experience and science. Combining both gives the best results. After all, you don't need a phD in psychology to develop a clean framework for life.
