I've built and led teams in person and remotely (before it was cool), managed both individual contributors and managers, crafted team objectives and more—all in service of creating healthy, happy, sustainable teams.
I work with design practitioners and partners to build digital products and experiences that are sensitive to the desires of the user, constraints of reality and requirements of the company. I value quality, pragmatism and balance throughout the product development lifecycle.
I work to engage, align and inspire diverse audiences through strategic communications. In addition to my own experiences presenting in front of groups small and large, I've also been a coach on public speaking, storytelling, and messaging for others.
