When we're learning; we're growing. That's why it's worth pursuing creative solutions in your business.

Over the last decade, I've focused on creating environments that foster transformation and turn long-held assumptions on their head.

SLACK: When everyone thought that support teams had to weather high turnover rates, I implemented organizational designs that maximized purpose and impact, virtually eliminating turnover across a global organization.

GOOGLE: When the Google Image Search team was undergoing massive transformation, I helped improve team operations.

EDCAMP: When everyone thought training had to be expensive, I built a free network of organic learning that rivaled the effectiveness and engagement of expensive consultants.

BRIGHTBYTES: When everyone thought customer retention was merely a function of price and product-market fit, I built a customer relationship network driven by thought-leadership that not only retained business but grew it by 20%.

Adopting an approach based on learning science and the research on high performing teams, I've relished in the opportunities to implement the unexpected and achieve the seemingly impossible.

I currently serve as the VP of Talent Management for Turn/River and it's companies.

I love working, learning, and growing alongside great people. Might your team be next?
