After spending 9 years at one of the most amazing design firms on the planet, then building the brand for a brazen new tech startup, I've ventured into a strange new world—the powerhouse known as Salesforce. Combining human centered design with the power of data breeds amazing opportunities, which is exactly what I'm focused on for Ignite, an internal team deemed by Forbes as "Salesforce’s secret weapon."

I'm a year and a half in, and what has motivated me throughout my career is gaining strength and depth. I want to surround myself with amazing people who I trust, do work that pushes the boundaries of design, brand, and business, and everywhere I go I want to crack open the perception of what's possible. (Making just enough money along the way to be able to color my hair whenever the urge strikes.)

I feel incredibly lucky that my involvement in the Chicago design community over the last seventeen years has widened my circle of friends to a point that’s made this entire city feel like home. I’m a straight shooter, I believe in serendipitous connections, and I want to see the people around me succeed. I believe that good business is about telling people what they need to hear, rather than what they want to hear. As my beloved leadership coach once said: We all need someone who can not only see who we are, but push us to be something better. Amen.
