I'm a multi-disclipinary designer and former developer. I'm always interested in taking on new challenges. I am mostly interested in products that serve a utility or business function. i.e. HR / HCM, fintech, ecommerce or logistics.
Critical thinking. I was a philosophy major. The skills I learned in school will pay a variety of dividends for the rest of my life. Holistic, analytical decision-making, removed from emotion, is an area where I excel. The AltMBA program I did last summer was a great refresher course, too.
Communication. I'm constantly evaluating how I show up and hold space for people, how I interact with colleagues, and how I give feedback to myself and others. I can take criticism because I've done, and continue to do the work. "Talk less and ask more. Your advice is not as good as you think it is" - The Coaching Habit
Work - Life balance. I strive to maintain a healthy relationship to work and pursue passion projects outside of work to keep my mind fresh and sharp.
Life Long learner. I believe anyone can be a teacher. I look for opportunities to grow and gain insight from people, no matter their station in life. I'm firmly in the growth mindset.
Service. Coming from a military family, I feel perpetually called to serve a common humanity, to give back to a greater good through great design and genuine interactions.
