I am an artistic engineer; I take complex technical data and present it in a comprehensible way. Endeavoring to bring human-centered design into engineering throughout product design and new product development, I constantly push to always learn and grow in UX and HCD practices. I believe at the crux of technical problem solving, design, and human connection is the field of my passion: product management.
I actually enjoy the No. 1 fear of the human race: public speaking. I also thrive on identifying opportunities and developing a strategy for accomplishing them. As an enthusiastic leader, I drive engagement from colleagues and the community by staying involved in STEM related outreach activities that are focused on attracting students to STEM and developing and encouraging those already in the field.
