I work with leaders in organizations to leverage the power of design to grow their communities and create greater impact. We use design thinking to overcome challenges and capture opportunities – building culture and communities, and crafting beautiful solutions.
I believe that creativity and collaboration are at the core of disrupting status quo for the better. The process is never a straight line and often feels frustrating, but it has a multiplying effect that far outweigh what each of us can do alone. Therefore, I've spent a large part of my career building creative cultures and leading collaborative teams at agencies in New York and startups in Silicon Valley.
Before my I started my career in design, I served as an officer in the Singapore military. I then attended Rhode Island School of Design, where I started a conference called Better World by Design, and went on to be selected as a TED Fellow. I also rode across the country on a bicycle for affordable housing, and occasionally I speak at conferences and schools.
I believe that every situation presents different problems, every problem demands a solution, and every solution can be pushed one step further. I love good challenges and enjoy working with others to take them on. If you have an idea you want to share or interested in working together, please get in touch.
While many talk about creating a better future, only a few actually get out of their comfort zones and dare to make it happen.
