I'm a hands-on problem solver who's successfully led research, strategy and design teams in small start-ups and large enterprises for 15 years. I'm passionate about the potential of design to solve problems and improve lives.
In my spare time, I mentor and teach design at several Bay Area graduate and professional schools and am a local leader for IxDASF.
I have an MFA in New Media from Academy of Art University (my designer/problem solver side) and a MA in International Relations from Columbia University (my systems analysis/researcher side). I've lived and worked in Europe, Russia and India.
Have an interesting design challenge?
I'd love to chat!
