Morgan Fabian

Morgan is a creative, technologist, and toolmaker from California. She has led a diverse set of projects and teams over the last decade that range in topics from artificial intelligence & virtual reality to public art installations & digital illustration.Right now, she is having fun leading the development of a real estate forecasting product with the brilliant team at Outer Labs.

Morgan has presented her work publicly numerous times in main stage keynotes, at conferences, in interviews, and through insider looks.

In her free time, she's spends her time thinking about tools for distilling complexity and how we prioritize our resources towards solving the world's most pressing problems.

She writes the publication Figures, which happens to include a lot of drawings. Drawings make complicated stuff easier to understand.
