I am a human-centered designer who believes business and design go hand-in-hand. By embracing the creative process, organizations are more likely to survive and thrive in a quickly evolving world. By placing design at the heart of strategic planning, we can come up with unexpected solutions to the world’s messiest problems.
I received my BFA in visual communications from Washington University in St. Louis before pursuing a Masters in Design Leadership from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and an MBA from the Carey Business School at Johns Hopkins University.
