This is my story
Today, I’m in a fulfilling place both personally and professionally. I consult across a spectrum of fascinating industries, work on projects that resonate with my values, and enjoy financial freedom. Through coaching, I have the privilege of helping others unlock their creativity, innovate, and design their lives entrepreneurially. But my path to this point was far from straightforward.
My journey began in the world of academia, where I earned a Ph.D. in Genetics. While I was passionate about the subject and the insights it provides when you understand the universal rules of information flow, I found the traditional academic path limiting. A serendipitous invention led me to the field of technology transfer, where I realized the immense potential of turning scientific ideas into tangible products.
Initially, I thought that the problems around innovation were with patents and contracts. But today, I see clearly what keeps new things from being realized: mindset challenges, interpersonal communication challenges, and struggles to authentically connect with others. My experience with both the scientific method and the opportunity to speak with countless people about innovation have allowed me to build a toolbox of models and approaches for designing the future.
