Design + Innovation Strategist




A special potential for innovation happens at the intersection of user-centered design thinking and business acumen.

Some problems, it turns out, can only be solved by an anthropology-trained UX designer with an MBA.

My unique background — with classical ethnographic research training through fieldwork in India and Mohawk territory, seasoned in the trenches of early-stage startups and Fortune 200 corporate innovation labs and informed by a creative business sense from an art school MBA — has positioned me perfectly for what I love to do: Understanding people's needs, managing product strategy, synthesizing qualitative and quantitative insights, ideating for innovation, facilitating super-effective brainstorms and generally leading successful teams.
