As a creative problem solver, I thrive at heart of where design, technology, and business meet real human needs. My professional trajectory has propelled me through the vibrant ecosystems of startups to Fortune 500 companies including Microsoft, Omada Health, and Trane Technologies. This journey has sharpened my skills in tuning into what people truly need, building high-caliber teams, and crafting innovative solutions that truly resonate.
With a designer's eye and a researcher's curiosity, I champion human-centered design — turning both qualitative and quantitative data into evidence-based decisions that drive business success. My mission is to foster innovative products and enterprises by delving into the core needs of people.
