I make the complex clear.

I'm a design researcher with expertise in translating findings into strategic narratives. From F500 bizops challenges to consumer-facing products, I drive strategy and deliver insights, aligning key stakeholders throughout the process. In the past, I've led top-rated teaching teams at Stanford University and published original research with Oxford University Press. In all of my work, an ability to clarify complex issues is at the center.
