Innovation Strategy & Design Thinking

Washington DC-Baltimore Area

I'm a seasoned and versatile designer, educator and entrepreneur with a background in art, psychology, and industrial design. I'm passionate about using design to influence behavior and solve human centered problems in a strategic and meaningful way. My broad background and unconventional path as a design leader, company founder, educator and business manager have given me a unique perspective and ability to reframe challenges and find opportunities to meet user needs while fulfilling business objectives. In addition to design direction my recent work has included managing a P&L, creating and managing budgets, business development, program design and delivery, workshop facilitation, conference presentations and coaching start ups.

In recent years it’s been a privilege to collaborate with a diverse range of enterprise clients from around the globe such as NEC, Steelcase, Airbus, Bayer, SAP, Genentech, Lockheed Martin and Caterpillar. I’ve also had the incredible opportunity to design and deliver curriculum for start-up and corporate accelerators allowing me to coach companies at all phases in a variety of verticals. In addition, working with nonprofits and governmental organizations such as the US Department of State, World Food Program and NASA has been a distinct honor.

I've been honored to receive 2 Dyson IDSA Eye For Why Awards, an IDEA Award, a Webby Award and a grant from IDSA and P&G to work with a team to investigate the effects of pesticides on migrant farming communities in California's central valley, among others. My work has been profiled in publications such as the New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Business Week and INNOVATION Magazine.

With deep experience in design and a passion for impact, I’m interested in continuing to broaden my toolkit and apply my interest in people, craft and strategy in a meaningful way.
