Jason Goodman | Founder, You X Labs

Executive Committee

1. Tell us about yourself!
I'm the cofounder of a user experience design agency in Toronto called You X Labs and sessional professor in Design at OCAD University.

2. What's your passion in life?
helping entrepreneurs & enterprises ideate, design and launch impact products and businesses to improve lives.

3. Why did you join AS2YP?
I spent 7 years researching and working with children and families on the spectrum and before making the career shift to design & technology and I wanted to reconnect with the community and help drive support for current needs.

4. What does philanthropy mean to you?
Philanthropy to me is all about invisible hands that bind and build - meaning that you give to foster movement in a positive direction. It's a united kind of giving with a goal to raising tides for current & future communities. In that sense, it's about our spiritual footprint.

5. What impact do I want to make as part of the AS2YP family?
I hope to help the com-munity to creatively expand its horizons in terms of programs, communications and impact initiatives.

6. If you could travel anywhere in the world with a knapsack, a journal and my favourite chocolate bar, where would it be?
I'd be writing with a pencil with a box of smarties on the soft, sandy beaches of Santorini, Greece. I hope you're asking for a reason? : )
