Bio

With over 15 years of experience creating change in the corporate world I am somewhat of a chameleon, I can fit in a number of different environments and am very comfortable navigating ambiguity. You can find me working on user experience (UX) projects, communication projects, design projects or strategy projects. In addition, I serve on the adjunct faculty at Madrid's IE Business School where I teach courses in design thinking, innovation and communication.

I've been fortunate to work with some amazing companies during my time as a consultant: Autodesk, SYNCADD, RedBox, Red Prairie, Lowes, Discover Card, Pershing BNY-Mellon, Constant Contact, DesignIt, IE Business School, AARP, Harley-Davidson, Teradata, TRW, Veracode, Volkswagen, Aprimo, Merck.

Please note: I only accept connection requests from people I have actually met or spoken with.

Specialties: Interdisciplinarian. I can do many things, especially together: Business Modeling, Lean-Startup Methods, Presentation Skills, Product Management, Service Design, Workshop Facilitation and Teaching

Language Skills: Native English Fluency; Spanish Advanced Proficiency
