Business Bio  LinkedIn Profile

My favorite feeling is wonder – that delightful moment of seeing strangeness in what is most familiar, seeing it through new eyes.  That’s fueled my passion for learning and discovery.  I love to immerse myself in data and then zoom out to see patterns, and then apply the insights to reframing problems, designing new solutions, and commercializing them.

Xinova is a place where I can help redefine the practices of innovation.  It perfectly leverages my background in primary research, product development and design, innovation strategy and building organizations.  It’s exciting to have such a unique combination of world-class assets and an extraordinarily seasoned team to focus on creating breakthrough innovations at scale.  

In the past I have been lucky to surround myself with amazingly smart people, lead teams with passion for rigor and insight, and be competitive enough to build (and exit) a large successful global innovation consultancy.  I’ve contributed to the invention of the professional practices of both Design Research and Design Management and taught these on five continents.  

I’m here to focus on using insights to design new offers and new companies that have the power to disrupt markets because they truly serve people.
