I’m a researcher and communicator, fascinated by the intersection of storytelling and human behaviour, so much so that I got a PhD in Communication & Culture! I’m a data nerd who works tirelessly to connect strategy to insights. Always asking “what problems are we trying to solve?” and “what other contexts are we not considering?,” I love targeting and delivering actionable insights to help businesses and organizations develop their product and tell their stories. Determining areas for effective change, prioritizing improvements, and building processes and programs to simplify work for everyone drives my every day.
