(NOT INCLUDING KITTEN TICKLING)
(?LET'S FACE IT, WHO REALLY KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERYTHING, ANYWAY)
INNOVATE • CREATE • INSPIRE
As an experienced creative leader, I've managed multiple global groups and teams in collaborative, matrixed
work environments. I've applied Human-Centered Design and data to achieve successful decisioning and concepting throughout the development process, across a variety of projects in dynamic, geo-diverse work environments.
I've established effective creative strategies and identified the needs, resources, and capabilities required
to accomplish objectives - whilst building, coaching, and mentoring teams of various sizes,
leveraging networks and partnerships to achieve business goals.
And now I am a full-time, benevolent pirate somewhere in Central America.
