Who Makes Playful Presents?
I do! I'm Tergel and I am the founder of Playful Presents. I am also a UX designer, educated in Computer Science and Studio Art.
After 3 wonderful years as a UX Designer at Apple working on tvOS, HomePod, Siri and iTunes, I am leaving my dream job to fulfill my destiny to build technology to help people learn more about themselves on their spiritual and emotional path towards self improvement.
I am open to all opportunities in the tech industry relating to mental health, spirituality and mindfulness. I want to create technology and products that help people learn about themselves to ward off our internal demons. I’m not talking about building technology for people who have specific mental illnesses, I’m talking about building technology that helps normal people who struggle with ups and downs, doubts and fears, happiness and sadness, the day to day stuff that bears down on us over time.
The sensation of being human is extremely taxing and our emotions, our thoughts and our belief systems are extremely complicated and to be frank, overwhelming. Just because you don’t have a diagnosable mental illness does not mean you don't need help. However, one great thing about people is that amidst all of this complexity- we are also capable of deep introspection and sight. We can see our emotions and our thoughts from an outside perspective and pass judgement on them from our belief systems. And then even more amazingly, we can think even more deeply about those thoughts and emotions.
I believe that technology is a tool that can help us see ourselves better.
And understand ourselves more - understand who we are, what we want, what we believe and how we think and feel. Sometimes we don’t know what it is that we are feeling or even thinking.
I believe that for humans to evolve and become more and more intelligent, we must learn to understand ourselves more fully and comprehensively. And to understand ourselves, we need sight. We need to be able to see. I believe that technology will give us the ability to see ourselves in ways we never have before. And when we are able to see ourselves through this new light or perspective, we become more conscious, more aware and more understanding of ourselves, and with that information, we can make different decision and only then can we evolve.
