I specialize in strategic research and innovation with a focus on user experience and new product and business development.
My mission is to identify and produce new pathways to innovation via user and brand research, in collaboration with thoughtful, talented people. I hope to channel my research and entrepreneurial experience into an established company’s ideation and innovation pathway to create meaningful, helpful tools, products, and brands.
HOW I WORK
I connect easily with collaborators and users/research subjects and value the insight and input of partners, employees, and outside stakeholders. I tend to see the world a bit more specifically than others. This, combined with my ability to innovate and connect with others quickly, has contributed to my entrepreneurial success. It is also why I value processes and teams. Working with/in them enables me to connect and create higher quality, more satisfying products.
IN MY SPARE TIME
I am outdoors, usually building something, or crossing the street to say hi to dogs. I like to dance. The Minnesota State Fair is very important to me.
