I am an Innovation Strategist with a passion for Human-centered Design as well as Product and Program Management via AGILE principals.

I have 13+ years of experience in strategic consulting encompassing all aspects of the business and digital development lifecycles.  My primary functional skills include Consultative Sales (or, Business Development), Sales Engineering and Experience Design.  I specialize in emerging platform strategy and innovation consulting for Fortune 500 brands.  I have founded and funded startups for which I have qualified sales to develop $1Million+ in contracts.  

I am a trained Urban Designer and Community Organizer and my niche is Client Advocacy for Social Impact.  I often work with Corporate Innovation Teams and CSR Departments to develop strategies and experiences that deliver sales by impacting client / consumer communities.  I enjoy the deep research and facilitated conversations to create monetary, social and cultural (or, local) value.  As a result, I have a diversity of skills, speak a fluency of operational languages and can serve as a conduit between departments from the boardroom to the field.

Moving forward, I seek roles that utilize my full skills and experience, teams that support cultural growth and corporate innovation and employers that value continued education including leadership training and emotional intelligence.
