I enjoy talking about anything, eating freshly baked cookies, and escaping into the hills on my bicycle. I believe in the power of design thinking to drive businesses forward with strategic and meaningful innovations—both big and small. Seeing the measurable impact my work has on small businesses and start-ups motivates and inspires me while confronting the strategic challenges big companies pose excites me and stokes my passion for the design process.
