    I am an educator, mediating experiences where appropriate challenge and rigor allows each learner to develop new understandings and take action on those learnings.

    I am a research and innovation practitioner. I have worked with companies at all stages of development from Fortune 100 companies to early-stage startups. I enjoy difficult challenges.

    I am a catalyst, helping learners take action by identifying the most important problem to solve and the most effective approach to get tangible results.

    I am highly creative and will bring a new approach to challenges while facilitating a process to generate completely new approaches and ideas.
