About Me

I am passionate about the intersection of design, technology and business innovation, and its power to transform the way we live. I am a Design Manager at Philips Design as part of their Healthworks Accelerator in Cambridge, MA. Before joining Philips I was Vice-president at THE MEME, a strategic design consultancy focused on helping organizations discover opportunities for growth and innovation by developing human-centered interactive product and service experiences. Currently developing a Design Acceleration program for start-ups and emerging businesses to harness the power of design thinking and agile design research methods for sustained business growth. I have been guest lecturer and panelists at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Stevens Institute of Technology, and at the IDSA’s international conferences, teaching and speaking about strategic design research, experience design, and innovation. Prior to joining THE MEME I was co-founder of CAPO design, a digital design agency, as well as UX researcher at Harvard’s Center for Design Informatics.
