A hands-on design leader with a specialty in systems thinking which I have used to transform network administration, telecom, e-commerce, jewelry manufacturing, costume fabrication for celebrities, and much more. My next career chapter will be focused on solving the climate crisis.

My principles as...

Nudge gently towards the "deep end"

To help people grow, place them in situations that are just beyond their current capabilities. If their toes can just barely touch the bottom of the proverbial pool, they’re in the right place.

Spend most of your time clarifying the problem

The most effective solutions are those that come from an obsessive focus on why something must be done in the first place. As you clarify this understanding, the solution will often present itself.

Keep sharpening the proverbial blade

Learning should be a practice, something we make a part of our routine. This is not to simply stay current but to find new ways to enjoy what you do.

What's motivating me now

In 2018, I took a year to travel the world. Along the way, I noticed systemic failures that were degrading the quality of our planet's ecosystems. For example, when learning to surf in Bali, the water was strewn with trash and packaging labels. Trash disposal in S.E. Asia was largely unavailable to rural residents so they often simply burned it. This crisis is in desperate need of attention and I'm ready to pitch in.

Where I've been (so far)

I joined an in-house team preparing to launch a major mobile service brand. Here I helped conduct user research & testing, developed strategic direction, and designed numerous website and native app experiences. I then stayed on for support after the brand launch.

Asia, Europe, Africa

I decided to spend my 40th year in this life traveling the world. I got to 11 countries on 3 continents, rode over 3,500 miles by motorcycle, read 16 books, learned to surf, collected 21 recipes, and gained a better understanding of how other cultures live. I also observed pervasive effects of climate change, sparking an interest to better understand this systemic issue.

What's next?
I'm looking to apply my 9+ years of design experience towards an issue that I can no longer ignore: the climate crisis. There's lots of hard work ahead but there's also a lot of exciting technology being developed to address this existential threat and I'm ready help make that technology a part of the solution.
