My childhood summers in Kenya ignited my passion for creating products, services, and business models that empower individuals and inspire delight. I remember in Kenya washing each piece of clothing by hand and wondering why there wasn’t a better solution adapted for their constraints. The idea of designing creative solutions to problems like these captivated my interest and led to my career in innovation, design, and development. I love what I do. Currently I’m establishing and leading a process to generate, prioritize, and qualify new product concepts for commercial viability that has transformed a single product startup into a platform company. My time at IDEO, University of Chicago Booth, and a tech startup has given me a unique perspective on how to balance desirability with technical feasibility and critical business metrics.
