Understanding today to help you build a better tomorrow.

 

With a background in Design and a Master's in Strategic Foresight and Innovation, I believe that understanding today can build a better tomorrow.

My roots are in the high tech industry, and my work has been seen in the hands of millions of mobile phone users. Nowadays I consult for a variety of organisations, from government groups to Fortune 500 companies. I am passionate about inspiring others to create the future, and have guest lectured on the intersection of trends and design at various universities and conferences. 

In my spare time I'm an avid knitter, gardener and cook. I also volunteer at the Kitchener Waterloo Humane Society, travel solo to far-flung places against better judgement, and dream of owning an alpaca farm.

In November, Aaron Szymanski and I spoke at UX Waterloo on Strategic Foresight and how it informs ethnographic research and product strategy.

My Master's Thesis took top prize at the Association of Professional Futurists' student awards 2017!
