I’m a creative disruptor who demystifies human experiences in complex situations. My expertise is in investigating why people do what they do, and designing incentives and systems that produce gains, not pain. I work at the intersection of design, strategy, and systems thinking.
Colleagues see me as the person who challenges limiting beliefs, tests assumptions, and drives ideas into action by building strong relationships. My identities of artist/researcher/educator/designer enable me to translate concepts between creative and analytical spaces and make cross-disciplinary connections.
As a researcher, I study and speak about hybrid professionals– people with multiple professional identities who integrate talents together and bring unique value to employers and clients.

More Than My Title: The Power of Hybrid Professionals in a Workforce of Experts and Generalists
In today’s world, professional identity is no longer just about being an expert or a generalist. Now, workers can be both. These hybrid professionals have unique talents that defy conventional labels because they work at the intersections of their multiple identities.
Discover how hybrid professionals are revolutionizing the workforce and leading exciting, one-of-a-kind work. If you’re a jack-of-all-trades or trying to figure out what differentiates you from others, give yourself permission to become a hybrid professional and be more than your title.
You might be a hybrid professional if:
✴ You are “everything.” You wear multiple hats for work.
✴ Nobody knows what you do. Your aunt, your mom, your best friend can’t fully describe what you do.
✴ You need to (re)define your professional brand. You aren’t sure what to call yourself.
