Anthony DeThomas /
Have you ever bumped your shin on a coffee table? That's what Anthony feels like when organizations miss the opportunity to take a human-centered approach to product and service design. Before joining Peer Insight, Anthony founded a healthy desserts startup through a competitive incubator program at Georgetown University. As an entrepreneur, he honed his scientific yet scrappy approach to customer and experience development. Prior to pivoting to human-centered design, Anthony tackled challenges like crafting the marketing strategy for a biotechnology startup, and congressional speech writing and policy management. Anthony holds an MS in Biotechnology from Georgetown University and a BA in English from Ohio State University.
What inspires me
The power of stories, great communication, scientific discoveries, personalized handshakes, meeting and being around great people, minimalist design, family and friends, and traveling to new places.
A favorite moment at Peer Insight
When I was meeting everyone for the first time I was greeted with a round of hugs instead of handshakes. This special group of people really made me feel appreciated and at home.
