I have a constant drive to discover the most interesting and important problems to solve. I want to bring my experience and expertise to diverse teams in an effort to reduce the most complex problems into elegant solutions using a human-centered design approach.
My career has been standing on the shoulders of giants, so here are some of their quotes that ring true for me:
- “Unless you begin with an interesting problem, it is unlikely you will end up with an interesting solution.” - Bob Gill
- “Don’t undertake a project unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible.” – Edwin Land
- "Enlightened trial and error succeeds over the planning of the lone genius." - David Kelley
- “The truest material for making new things isn’t aluminum or carbon fiber. It’s behavior.” – Robert Fabricant
- “Metaphors die in repeated use but leave behind the reality that they had languaged into being” – Klaus Krippendorff
- “This borderless-ness, or, if you prefer, confusion, is also crucial to what we consider progress. As people invented new tools for new ways of living, they simultaneously created new realms of ignorance…when it comes to new technologies, incomplete understanding is empowering” – Elizabeth Kolbert
