20+ Years of Experience
I help unlock the power of human-centered design and cross-functional teams.
I believe that effective leadership involves managing our energy and that of others. To unleash this energy, creativity is the key. When we nurture and tap into our creative energy, it becomes a powerful force for change, enabling us to break free from past constraints and discover new possibilities.
Successful teams align around a shared vision. With a futurist bend, I explore technology trends and analogs coupled with customer insights to push on “business as usual.” The resultant experiences motivate teams and improve customers’ lives and the bottom line.
The Industrial Revolution led to efficiencies at the expense of innovation. Gifted with a neurodivergent mind, I unleash the creativity locked within—resulting in increased agility, collaboration, and diverse ideas and solutions. After all, we weren’t meant to work on assembly lines.
Great designers navigate multiple levels of zoom. As a visual and UI designer by trade, I’m able to navigate the surface layer and ensure experiences adhere to brand standards and design principles while maintaining a high bar for quality experiences.
Small changes have a ripple effect across the end-to-end experience. With a Master of Science in Information Technology, I’m naturally adept at wrangling complexity and ensuring the underlying systems and touch points support the customer’s journey.
When teams feel safe and unencumbered to take risks, creativity and innovation flourish. I’ve had the pleasure of leading teams that have created significant impact—including removing overdraft fees and empowering parents and kids to be money-wise. Oh, and we won some awards along the way.
