Weaving a career in producing and storytelling with interaction and experience design, I have an affinity for audience engagement and a penchant for empathetic understanding in user research.
I am avid about investigating the motivations around the experiences in people's lives, drawing insight from them, and connecting discoveries to better designs and new ventures.
I thrive working with others to cross-pollinate ideas.
I tend to believe...
+ There's a way.
+ Opportunity lies in the confluence of different ideas, facts, and trends.
+ The future is created by those who envision and make it happen.

I'm often the one with a marker, next to the board. Many times harnessing the energy of a design team, and sometimes with a focus on solo exploration, I am at home pushing subjects to their edge to break down (and build up) elements that spark connections for undiscovered opportunities.
I tend to be realistic and critical, and I hold to the fundamental design qualification of real human needs, fit with appropriate technology, in a sustainable business model. At the same time, I bolster my work with humor and playfulness whenever possible.
