  • Design vision: What do i bring to the table?

    I bring cohesive structure, organization, and perspective to complex cross-disciplinary projects.


    "Your needs are met."


    I want to contribute to community. Giving graciously can lead to genuine connections.


    "You, me, us."


    We can do better, together. I have a desire to gather, share, and tackle common problems and ideas.


    "We've got this."


    I've got your back. I will make whoever I am working with feel safe and provided for.


    "You are great and so are we."


    I aim to shape results. I have a desire to lead and help.
