About Me

I love ideation, concept design and strategy.

I enjoy coming alongside people with ideas to help them successfully actualize them. This tends to manifest itself in the entrepreneur and startup realm.

I believe that good design requires understanding both the current problems to be addressed and the intended impact of the solution. Defining both extremes allows for additional creativity in the “how”.

In many ways, I am a human router of practical and relevant information, people connections, and resources.


Dreaming big and then breaking it down into “victory-size packages”, navigating ambiguity, quickly building rapport, and word-smithing for maximum resonance.
