What I Do

I wrangle multiple and sometimes conflicting inputs (including qualitative and quantitative data, theoretical concepts, historical context, trends, and competitive analyses) into a common framework where they can be easily understood, expressed, and acted upon by our clients and their end users.

I love developing content and solutions that get people to what they need efficiently and delightfully.
