My passion is creating the conditions for collective creativity. I curate powerful experiences to help organizations accomplish their strategic aims, and have built my career exposing organizations to human-centered design as a means to respond to complex challenges for which they do not have a preexisting roadmap.

After completing an M.A. in Anthropology at the University of Chicago and running a startup company that licensed UofC medical technology, I spent several years at the visionary design school, IIT Institute of Design, where the original model for immersive experiences was seeded. My time there inspired me to launch and co-produce The New Bauhaus feature documentary with Opendox.
