    ABOUT

    Like many globetrotters since birth, I’m forever a student of learning the differences that make us unique and get along. One part wellness practitioner and one part innovation strategist, I’m passionate about designing ways people can thrive. I’ve evolved to become a hybrid, multi-cultural insight researcher and ideas tinkerer who knows real transformation doesn’t just come from newness but principle-based change that fixes a real world problem. I’ve made ideas happen for a variety of businesses, from pioneering start-ups to multinational brands across various categories — all with the intention of designing from the whole human to create new systems of living in harmony with our own bodies, our societies and the planet at large.
