I’m a culture starter who cares a lot about people.
I’m frequently praised for my cultural contributions to the teams I have had the pleasure of leading. I care a lot about others and ensuring everyone has a good experience and feels a sense of belonging on the team.
As a Director of the Design+ department at Think Company I was nominated for the internal “Uncle B. Award”. Notably for upholding our core values of being excellent, kind to people, honest, serving others, and for continuously working with others to help them improve.
Winning such an award was such a humbling experience for me. As I tell all my direct reports—being a people leader has been the most exciting experience of the last 10+ years of my career. I love being able to guide others and provide them with the tools to excel in their role.
“While talking with him you can tell he is really invested and is very supportive.”
I thrive in complexity and know how to design for scale.
I’ve worked on complex problems and facilitated cross-functional alignment between teams in order to design durable, sustainable solutions through experimentation that are built to scale in the long term.
Working with a multi-sided user base, and various complex regulated industries are commonplace for me. I’m always eager to help business teams grow, and guide product with the customer journey.
I have helped recruit and maintain designers across all disciplines. Within the last decade, I have established Product and UX design teams from scratch. My direct reports have ranged from Product and UX designers to Researchers and Content Strategists.
Software Admin & Budget Oversight
Another area of expertise I have demonstrated a high level of business awareness is with the ownership and oversight of discipline-specific software. Despite being a leader within organizations, I’m still a designer at heart. This gives me the ability to remain close to the most trending and desirable industry-specific software.
When evaluating the usage and convergence of tools, remaining close to such things has allowed me to save businesses upwards of $80K annually. It has also proven to help with the redistribution of funds to invest in things like team culture and professional development.
