Always the beautiful answer who asks a more beautiful question.


- e.e. cummings

I love problems.

I love them because wherever there is a problem, there is an opportunity: a chance to rethink the way we do things and an opportunity to change the way the world works.

I begin with one of the most powerful but overlooked tools that we all have: listening. I use thorough and thoughtful qualitative research to understand the needs of the people we are trying to help, and combine it with rigorous synthesis & analysis to discover high value opportunities and build products that satisfy quantifiable human needs.

I then use design thinking and rapid prototyping to test ideas and challenge solutions until we have crafted the most efficient and effective way to solve the problem.

I work cross functionally, across a variety of verticals, in almost any medium and stage from conception to production. I have dedicated much of my career to this this process in pursuit of making impactful products that help real people. I would love nothing more than to help you make the world a slightly better place for someone.
