Curiosity and connection

I'm a professional overthinker with an intense curiosity for understanding how people connect with brands.


My role is to be a human bridge between logic and magic, strategy and design.


With user research and testing, I leverage data to validate my creative instincts. Digging into the deepest analytics rabbit holes thrills me. Even more thrilling is interpreting the data to gain real insight into the people we're connecting with.


I'm a global citizen having lived, traveled, and worked with collaborators in all corners of the world. Experiencing a diverse array of cultures has turned my empathy superpowers up to 11.
