Business Bio  LinkedIn Profile

I was once asked, what do you want to do for a living.” Perhaps they were expecting to hear a more defined career, such as engineer or teacher, but my only response was, solve problems.” At the time, solving problems was not precisely a job someone studied for, but it did focus my attention to ask questions and challenge the status quo in all subjects that I applied myself to.  

With a slightly ambiguous career direction, I began to tackle challenges found in distance learning education, socio-economic barriers to internet access and improving software for online learning (all pre-YouTube!) at The Evergreen State College.  There I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree and later applied these solutions with the Digital Bridge Technology Academy.
As part of the dotcom boom (and bust), I journeyed through a few non-starters as a developer and later as a project manager, working on problems in advertising and media.  Finding a unique opportunity in banking (Washington Mutual/JPMorgan Chase), I began working on a broader set of legal and risk challenges that required a blending of technology, program management and business strategy to solve.
After 20 years’ experience solving challenges across many industry sectors, within start-ups and Fortune 500 firms, I’ve gained a great appreciation for the complexity of innovation, the desire for simple solutions, and the mythology of quick fixes. Along the journey, I picked up an MBA, Project Management certification and training in six sigma, lean start-up and design thinking.

As the Head of Xinova’s Innovation Services Group, I have the great privilege of working with teams of brilliant people, dedicated to tackling some of the world’s most difficult challenges.  Together, we partner with clients, innovators, developers, entrepreneurs and others to solve problems through innovation and collaboration.  Turns out there is a career for problem solvers!
