WHAT I DO

I bring innovation, empathy, sustainability, and future-forward thinking to all the projects I work on. By re-framing and deeply exploring the challenges at hand, I identify untapped opportunity, refine and improve system work-flows and processes, and strategically plan for the future.

HOW I WORK

I tailor my process to each unique challenge, fusing a variety of innovative frameworks and core capabilities: 

Project & Event

Management

Human-Centered Research & Design

Narratives &

Visual Storytelling

Stakeholder

Facilitation

Journey & Systems

Mapping

Business Model Innovation

Trend Forecasting & Foresight Tools

WHAT I BELIEVE

The challenges facing today’s society, industries, and organizations are more complex than ever. To solve them requires out-of-the-box thinking that challenges the status quo and pushes us to new and unexpected terrain. I believe that design (and design strategy) provides us this opportunity— with a fresh, unbiased lens, design can unlock a more equitable, sustainable, and profitable future. With this philosophy in tow, I seek to collaborate with impact-oriented businesses, non-profits, and organizations that strive to improve the world around us. Let’s create impact together.
