Here's who I am & what I do
Design and innovation are my tools to promote and execute social change. I enjoy and commit myself to projects that have a positive impact on people and the planet, and I do my best to make this transformation an enriching and authentic experience, both for the team and for our partners. Organization and humor are my keys to success. I take pride in the work I do, as well as the strong relationships I’ve built with clients and colleagues.
I help companies define, design, and launch customer-centric digital products by extracting meaningful insights from the research process and executing design decisions with a lean mentality.
