I believe global knowledge, design empathy and systems perspective are keys to a more peaceful and sustainable future. Whether designing a business, a website, a product, a curriculum, a brand or a team culture, I use human-centered design methodologies and conscious capitalism principles to build experiences that inspire and empower people to better themselves and the world around them.As a Co-Founder of GO, I spent 2014 co-living, co-learning, and co-working in regional innovation hubs around the world in a self-organized, multi-skilled team of entrepreneurs, designers and consultants. For 3 months in each hub, our cohort worked on short-term, high-impact projects to scale ideas, launch startups, train entrepreneurs, and enhance collaboration within and across community and SME ecosystems.In Yangon, Myanmar we worked with Ideabox and Ooredoo. I consulted on mobile projects and coworking initiatives aimed at enhancing entrepreneurship and countrywide digital infrastructure.In Istanbul, Turkey we were in-house mentors at the accelerator program, Startupbootcamp Istanbul. I developed strategies in branding, growth hacking, UX, sponsorships and partnerships for startups. GO conducted workshops and operations for the program and Demo Day.In Santiago, Chile, we consulted for the country’s first rewards-based crowdfunding platform in collaboration with ProChile. I worked with the executive team at Mujeres del Pacifico’s to develop and launch their innovation training curriculum called Lab I M to empower SME entrepreneurs and corporate executives in the Pacific Alliance.With corporate training at Discover Financial Services and Diners Club International at the beginning of my career and an ability to see the big vision and details simultaneously, I bring the structure and strategy needed for entrepreneurial teams to bring complex, innovative ideas to fruition.
