I'm a systems thinker specializing in research, product innovation, strategy, and design. I build and design data-informed products, transform and grow companies through design and grow and lead teams of people with a focus candor, empathy and humor.
I’ve spent almost a decade building products of all kinds, growing teams and companies and building with people in mind. Having started my career creating TV and Film gave me a huge advantage when I grew into a role in Innovation and Product Management to where I am now focused on Product Design.
I get excited by new ideas, solving problems, understanding people and learning brand new things. I’ve worked across education, health, banking, transportation, marketing and predictive technology - I’m currently focused on integrating data and research, future-proofing startups and design teams, the intersection of human-centered and machine-centered thinking (let’s talk about what AI means for you!) and creating fun and safe spaces for people to grow and learn.
