We are taking a break from our consulting practice to pursue longtime goals...

Jeff is doing a stint of public service at Login.gov, working to improve the user experience of accessing government services.[1]

Alan is now stewarding land in Western North Carolina to help end the racial wealth gap in land ownership and revive traditional ecological knowledge for healing the places we love.[2]

Night Train remains our vessel for creative projects – writing, experiments, etc. In that realm, we are currently:

  • Supporting Open Masters – a self-directed learning community.
  • Building a hobby project called HowNow for guides & recommendations.
  • Coordinating a CTO peer group for the Charlottesville community.

We recently finished:

  • Running a product discovery process for Lumin to design the next version of their smart electrical panel, which allows homeowners to optimize their energy usage, particularly in solar + battery settings.
  • Building out a data warehouse & business intelligence system for an online grocery SaaS company, Locai Solutions.
  • Helping Myth Talent reimagine the broken career search market in tech via strategy consulting, and offering career advising to individuals along the way.

And before that, we:

  • Advised on product & data strategy for Dorsata, a healthcare startup that is building products to improve maternity care.
  • Rolled out a business intelligence & data science platform for Apex Clean Energy with our partner, Stacker Group.
  • Helped Imperfect Foods rebuild the engineering and data platform that underlies their grocery subscription => food waste reduction product.
  • Led a product strategy process for Locus Health to help them dial in their approach to offering remote healthcare monitoring, especially in pediatrics.
  • Advised a group of UVa students who created Wanderer's Point to fill the advising gap for college students in transition during COVID.
  • Provided creative support and production assistance for the Basic Income Film project.
