what's about to Happen
Discovery drives the will to live. It makes meaning out of moments. It shapes ideas into structures so they don't disappear -- so they show up as words, music, images, inventions, cures, experiences.
Life is sculpted by discovery through the projects we pursue. If some of these projects inspire you - jump in. Nothing created thrives in a vacuum. It depends on you. We can make an impact together.
Creative Strategy & Execution
For more than 20 years, I have collaboratively worked with teams of smart,inspired and driven people who want to make an impact in the world. From Fortune 10 companies like McKesson to high-tech giants like AMD to health innovators like Genentech, my singular passion has always been to make information sparkle so that it's both accessible and memorable.
When I facilitate teams, I turn silos into circle. People engage and communicate. It's what we're all meant to be doing. If my work ignites your interest, let's join forces and create something together.
