At Structured Mischief, we help businesses and individuals grow and transform

As a team, we continually challenge the status quo, shatter calcified thinking, and interrupt thought patterns that keep us in a stuck place.

Let's Journey Together

Raw Talent

Innate Genius

Focused Organization

The most powerful, and least celebrated, part of the founder’s journey to turn any idea into our reality is actioning perspective mixed with continued curiosity.

Exploring every “what if” and organizing those sparks to operational success is what fuels us.

Our team is committed to ideas of complexity that, when iterated to perfection, shape a future that was previously unimagined. Led by David Jensen, this global community is a curated collective of business leaders, trailblazers, and futurists.
