I solve problems through business, design, and tech.

 

I’m a systems thinker, but no title captures the full heart of what I hope to do. A title may capture the form my work takes but it doesn’t capture its purpose. A title reveals where my talents and skills lie but it doesn’t explain why I choose to use them.

In my professional experience, I’ve designed the program for the Techstars Boston accelerator, built communities through Techstars Startup Programs, led operations and strategy at Trestles, a service design consultancy, shaped entrepreneurial experiences at HQ Raleigh, and created STEM curriculum at North Carolina State University. With a background in business, technology, and design I know how to tow the interdisciplinary line and evaluate systems anywhere I go. To quote Donella Meadows: “There are no separate systems. The world is a continuum. Where to draw a boundary around a system depends on the purpose of the discussion.”
