My passion is in generating creative problem solving ideas quickly while working with diverse teams of design talent. I work to develop unique, thoughtful, and empathic insights between facts, events, people, problems and solutions.

As a designer and student in the MBA in Design Strategy program at California College of the Arts I am driven by the idea that we don’t necessarily need to ’make new things’; instead we can look differently at what already surrounds us and understand what we see in a new way.
